    I've had a quick Google, and I can't find any seed suppliers for poinsettia.

    I've been trying for years to track down some seed but it seems they are only propagated by cuttings in this country . There is a particular one with white in the bracts that gives a splashed snow effect but I have difficulty even finding that as a plant.

    Hi,
    You can get some mail order from this company in USA.

    Wow thought I'd cracked it but when I took your advice and went to Park seeds they only have "Summer " Poinsettia seed. The Christmas one is a Euphorbia pulcherrima or something I believe and the summer one is an Amaranthus. Never mind it was worth a try still on the search.
