Potted poinsettias aplenty

Brian Nicholson, Deseret Morning News

Mary Wild of West Bountiful picks out a perfect, potted poinsettia in a field of nearly 40,000 Friday. The plants were grown at J & J Nursery in Layton and are ready to brighten Utahns' holiday festivities. Many people think the showy red parts of a poinsettia are the flowers when, in fact, they are bracts, or modified leaves. The flowers of the poinsettia are in the center of the colorful bracts.
