Božična zvezda / Poinsettia

28. november 2017

Božična zvezda ali Poinsettia izhaja iz Mehike. Poznali so jo že Azteki, ki so jo imenovali Zvezdna roža.
V divjini raste kot grm, tudi do 5 m visoko. Leta 1828 jo je prinesel v ZDA ameriški ambasador Joel Roberts Poinsettia, po katerem se roža tudi imenuje. Razmnožil jo je in poslal vsem botaničnim vrtom na svetu.
Danes je na trgu več kot 100 vrst gojenih Božičnih zvezd.

Moj obisk na otoku Tenerife me je navdušil nad to prekrasno rastlino, saj sem jo tam prvič videla v divjini. Čudovito žareča rdeča roža, ki ti vzame dih !
Christmas star or Poinsettia has origin in Mexico. It was already known by the Aztecs with name  the Star Flower. In the wild nature it grows like a bush, up to 5 m high. In 1828 US Ambassador Joel Roberts Poinsetti brought it to the United States and the plant was named after him. He cultivate it and sent plants to all botanical gardens in the world.

Today there are more than 100 cultivated varieties of Ponsettia.



My visit to the island of Tenerife impressed me with this wonderful plant, beacuse for the first time I saw it in the wild. A beautiful glowing red flower that takes your breath away!


Izdelala sem božični okrasek kot balonček, ki se lahko obesi na okno ali vrata.  V notranjosti se skriva stiroporna krogla, ki sem jo zavila v filc in okrasila z Bžično zvezdo iz filca, vejica in listi iz filca, foam & papirja ter krem čipko in majhnimi perlicami.

Okrasek sem naredila za Izziv Božična zvezda na naši Darilnica Klavdija in tam tudi kupila šablone💖


I made a Christmas ornament like a balloon, it can hanging on a window or a door. Inside, there is the styrofoam ball wrapped into a felt and decorated with a Ponsettia made of felt, a twigs and  leafs of felt, foam & paper, for last a beautiful cream lace and small beads.

  5. Hvala za ta opis, tega namreč nisem vedela. Sploh pa me je presenetilo, da raste kot grm. In tvoj izdelek mi je nadvse všeč.
