Towns fill with poinsettias for Christmas

Flor de pascua, the very festive poinsettia blooms wild in Tenerife at this time of year.

Every town and village will be decorated and parks, squares and verges planted with a plethora of bright and festive Flor de pascua (poinsettia) plants. In this video from 2012, it's mentioned that 45,000 of them are planted in the city of Santa Cruz alone and school kids from all over the island grow the seedlings and help with planting. Unfortunately, the plants are so attractive, that people steal them from the displays and in an effort to deter them, the plants are now planted directly in the soil and not in easy to carry off plant pots.



Las flores de Pascua adornan ya las ciudades
