The Poinsettia"cuitlaxochitl"Flor de Nochebena

The poinsettia was called "cuitlaxochitl" by the Aztecs, who prized it as a dye and a fever-reducing medication. According to Bella Online, Montezuma, the last of the Aztec kings, brought the plants to Mexico City in caravans because they could not be grown at high altitude. The website adds that the poinsettia was named after Joel R. Poinsett, the U.S. minister to Mexico in the late 1820s, who introduced it to America
