One of our best-loved Christmas symbols is named for a transplanted Texan. The poinsettia is named for Dr. Joel Roberts Poinsett, an amateur botanist originally from South Carolina. It is said that while Poinsett served as the first U.S. minister (ambassador) to Mexico from 1825 to 1829, he took a liking to the showy flower while living in Texas.
