Poinsetta or Poinsettia :



Those showy plants that appear in the stores around Christmas are “poinsettias,” named after American diplomat John R. Poinsett who introduced them into the U.S. from Mexico.


The Latin ending “-ia” is seldom pronounced as spelled, but that’s no justification for misspelling the word as “poinsetta.”
