How do YOU pronounce "Poinsettia?"
Do you say "POIN-SETTA?"
How about "POIN-SETTIA," with emphasis on the long "i" at the end?
Watch Shirley Bovshow in this fast 20-second video, "How to Pronounce Poinsettia Correctly" from her Garden World Report Show and see how well you did!
Watch Shirley on the Home & Family Show on the Hallmark Channel for weekly gardening segments!
Thanks! (Just a few days ago we were discussing this very thing)
Love the kiwi growing too.
Hi Julieann- Thanks for visting EdenMakers. Glad I could teach you something new. Please drop by again in future.
Thank you for teaching me how to pronounce poinsettia; I too have been pronouncing it incorrectly. Poinsettia is pronounced with "short i" not "long i" . The short i has an sound like "it" where long i has "eye" sound. Grea website, and I was reading about your miniature gardens!
