The holidays are approaching quickly and it is time to start making those important decorating decisions. Flowers and plants brighten up any room and traditional poinsettias are always a welcome sight at the festivities. Poinsettias come in many different varieties offering holiday decorators plenty of choices for any holiday setting. With bloom colors in peach, yellow, pink or gold-splashed leaves, poinsettia lovers no longer have to settle for just red. Every major grocery store usually sells poinsettias for a reasonable price, and that may be fine if you need something just before your guests arrive. If you are looking for one as a gift or centerpiece, the grocery store may not be the best source. You can find poinsettias almost anywhere but here is a list of some of the best florists to get yours this holiday season.
