Also, what is the Christmas plant called?
Poinsettias at Christmas. Poinsettia plants are native to Central America, especially an area of southern Mexico known as 'Taxco del Alarcon' where they flower during the winter. The ancient Aztecs called them 'cuetlaxochitl'.
Likewise, what is the symbolism of holly? A holly's pointed leaves symbolize the crown of thorns placed on Jesus' head before he died on the cross. Holly is known as christdorn in German, meaning "Christ thorn." Both of these symbols are meant to serve as a reminder to Christians of Jesus' suffering, but they aren't the only stories tying holly to Jesus.
Keeping this in view, what are Christmas tree leaves called?
The needles are actually the leaves of your Christmas tree. Pine, fir, spruce and other conifer needles are actually complex, photosynthetic organs, just like the leaves you're used to seeing on other plants.
Is Ivy a Christmas plant?
Holly and Ivy are often linked together at Christmas; this goes back much further, to the idea of the holly (male) and ivy (female) being burnt together at the pagan festival of Beltane. Ivy, like holly, is an important evergreen edible plant species in UK woodland.
