Pascuita or the small leaved white Poinsettia is a plant where beauty stems from the leaves and not from flowers. Originating from Mexico and Central America, all poinsettias found fame and popularity in the USA. Red ones are used extensively for natural Christmas decoration. The name it self comes from that of the US Minister for Mexico in the early 19th Century when this plant was brought to USA.
