Call me traditional but I just love vibrant red poinsettias. We get in all sorts of pinks, red and white and sprayed glitter blue and purples. ehhh... >. I love the way they brighten up a room. They are poisonous to animals so you have to make sure they are up if you have a chewer or a puppy. My dog doesn't care about them but I still have them on my sofa table. Here's a listing of plants that are posionous to animals. Gotta' keep our furry family members safe, too.
