Is there a Poinsettia that Looks Like a Rose?

My Mom keeps telling me she had a poinsettia that looked like a rose flower. Is there one and what’s it called? Thanks, Beth

Hi Beth,

There is a Poinsettia called a Winter Rose that does look like a Rose. Here’s a picture of it.


The Winter Rose Poinsettia was first developed by the Paul Ecke Plant Company.  The leaves and bracts on the Winter Rose Poinsettia are smaller than those on the original Poinsettia Plant and the colored bracts look like a beautiful open rose. Winter Rose Poinsettias are available in red, white, pink, and marble.
