Pop-up Poinsettia & Amaryllis Cards
Exotic specimens which originated in South America: the amaryllis was imported to Europe by Portuguese traders in the 16th century. The name 'Amaryllis' derives from the Greek word ‘amarysso’, meaning 'to sparkle'. Native to Mexico, Christmas-blooming poinsettia plants became better known thanks to propagation by Joel Roberts Poinsett (1779-1851), the first United States Ambassador to Mexico, who brought the cheery, red plants back to his South Carolina home in the 1820s; gifting many of the plants to his friends and fellow botanists. Intricate centrepieces which pop up from flat when opened to send your Christmas greetings.
