The family business is on the line to deliver tens of thousands of plants for the town's annual parade. The problem is - the poinsettias have yet to turn red! As Ellie searches for the solution, she is reminded of where her heart truly lies as she falls in love with both her roots and a local botanist (Marcus Rosner).

  1. Loved Poinsettias for Christmas, great chemistry between Joy and Marcus. He finally got the girl LOL. Lifetime is sure giving Hallmark a run for it's money in the Christmas movie genre. Personally, this year I'm leaning more towards to Lifetime Christmas movies instead of Hallmark, I'm just not feeling it with the new movies on the Hallmark networks, I can't decide if it's because of the same actors/actresses over and over again, the same kind of storyline (girl meets boy, they fall in love...), but I do have my favorites, older Hallmark movies that I've kept on my DVR (Naughty or Nice, Fir Crazy, Christmas Getaway, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, The Christmas Card). Net, I hope you have a wonderful Holiday Season!

    1. Hey Jill, I finally watched "Poinsettias for Christmas" and I loved it, too! It has all the ingredients of an excellent Christmas movie, plus Joy and Marcus had that certain spark!

      I think this is going to be another fan favorite! Lifetime does it again... just like Snowed Inn Christmas last year!

      I'm with you... I still love many of the Hallmark movie classics best!

      Merry Christmas!!! Net

  2. I LOOOVE that Joy Lenz is on another Christmas movie this year. She was amazing last year in "Snowed Inn", and here she did it again! She's definitely one of my favorites! Great chemistry with Marcus too. The love triangle was kinda of "meh" for me, but oh well. This movie is definitely one of the better ones this year. As Jill said above, Lifetime is definitely bringing their A game. I haven't had a standout from Hallmark yet so far this year, except for "Godwink Christmas".

    1. Hello CH Mom, Thank you for this review and many other awesome reviews! That was so sweet and thoughtful of you to do! I, too, just loved this one! Joy and Marcus did not disappoint one bit, plus with John Schneider (I mean, how cool is the guy from Dukes of Hazzard... I have a brother who always watched it growing up!), and the story of the farm in trouble, and it was a real big hit with all my family! Glad you loved it, too, CH! :)

      Merry Christmas!!! Net
