Varigated 'municipal' poinsettias in La Laguna

Tenerife Island Council is this year supplying 65,000 Flor de Pascua, or poinsettia, plants to various town halls across the island in order to dress up parks and squares for the Christmas festivities. The plants have been specially cultivated in island nurseries and are distributed each year for the seasonal decorations.

Where can you see them displayed? Well, the plants are shared out according to the number of inhabitants in each district, so Santa Cruz get the largest number with 6,000 plants, with La Laguna (5,000) and Arona (4,000) second and third.

Hundreds more are given to various associations and centers providing social services, so the plants are bound to brighten someone's season.
