‘Fantasy Colors’ Poinsettias are spray dyed with specially formulated ethanol based dyes. The glitter is sealed on with a specially formulated glue/sealant. Both of these treatments will not affect the life of the poinsettia. They will continue to bloom throughout the holiday season with proper light and care. Our poinsettias were all individually hand-dyed, so each one is unique. Although the dye is permanent, please do not water from over head- water at soil level or by submerging the pot in a tub of water. The dye may run and stain clothing, carpet, etc.
