 It is a little-known fact that the poinsettia was introduced to the gardening world from the Philadephia's Bartram Botanic Garden in 1829. This international symbol of winter cheer was first successfully grown outside its Mexican homeland by Robert and Ann Bartram Carr at the Bartram’s Garden in Philadelphia.

The plant now known as poinsettia, Euphorbia pulcherrima, is native to the pacific coast of Mexico and has an ancient history of human use. It was almost certainly seen by early European explorers and colonists, but somehow never entered cultivation in Europe. It was re-discovered or at least brought to the attention of the outside world in the 1820s by an American, Joel Roberts Poinsett (1778-1851).

  Every piece of Emma Bridgewater Pottery is made with love in Stoke on Trent, England and comes with a hand-painted, hand-finished touch. But no need to worry - being part of your everyday routine won't wear it down, since all our pieces are perfectly capable of surviving even the toughest dishwasher cycle!
