You’re quite right. The flowers are the little yellow parts in the centre. They are surrounded by the red bracts or leaves and these are what gives the plant it’s stunning appearance.

Truly spectacular, Doug.

For anyone who is interested, this is how the wild poinsettias in Florida look.

That's wonderful Christel, it looks 3D.

The Poinsettias we get around Christmas here have wider bracts Karin.
