|Maui's idea of a "White Christmas" - white poinsettia blossoms|
Actually, poinsettia "blossoms" are not really blossoms - they are leaves that change color, especially in December approaching the Winter Solstice. The only gardening tip I heard regarding poinsettias is that they don't like to change color if they receive too much light at night.
Maui is abundant with blooming poinsettias at this time of year. Many unassuming front yards burst into bloom.
