I'm often asked if they're poisonous. Experts seem to agree that poinsettias are not toxic. An Ohio State University study showed that a 50 pound child eating 500 leaves might get a slight tummy ache. Question:Am them any natural oc- curring plants or common plants in the landscape that I can use to make Christ- mas wreaths? One of the best plants to make wreath flames grows all over the hill country: native grape vines. By this time of the year they have lost their leaves and their pliable vines can be cut and formed into circular-shaped flames. Plants such as bay laurel, blue ice cy- press, holly, and juniper can be wired to the flame to make an evergreen cover. Dried herbs and fruit, eucalyptus, pine cones, cinnamon, and star anise can then be added to the wreath to add interest and flagrance. This combination of natural products should last through the season. Happy Holidays everyone!
