Poinsettias for Christmas is a heartwarming holiday movie released in 2018 that tells the story of a woman named Ellie, played by Bethany Joy Lenz, who returns to her hometown of Pine Grove after her father's death to settle his affairs. Ellie's father, who was a florist, had a dream of winning the annual holiday poinsettia competition, which has been dominated by a rival florist, Ridgefield's Flowers, for years. As Ellie tries to honor her father's dream, she faces several challenges, including a strained relationship with her mother, played by Sharon Lawrence, and a love triangle involving her former high school sweetheart, played by Marcus Rosner, and a successful businessman, played by John Schneider.

The movie starts with Ellie's arrival in Pine Grove, where she meets her father's neighbor, Mr. Krueger, played by Tom Arnold, who helps her settle in. Ellie's mother, however, is not happy to see her, as she blames her for her father's death. Ellie's father died while they were in a heated argument, leaving her with a lot of guilt and regret. As Ellie tries to move on from her past, she decides to take over her father's flower shop and compete in the poinsettia competition. However, she soon realizes that winning the competition won't be easy, as she lacks experience and is facing stiff competition from Ridgefield's Flowers.

To gain an edge over her rivals, Ellie tries to learn the secrets of growing the perfect poinsettia from her father's journals, which lead her to a greenhouse owned by the handsome and successful businessman, Nick, who also happens to be her father's former apprentice. Nick, who is still single, is charmed by Ellie and agrees to help her with her poinsettias. As they work together, Ellie and Nick develop feelings for each other, but Ellie's high school sweetheart, Rick, who is also back in town, has not given up on her. Rick, who runs his own landscaping business, is bitter about losing Ellie to Nick and tries to sabotage her by stealing her poinsettias and damaging her father's flower shop. Ellie, however, is determined to overcome all obstacles and make her father proud.

As the competition draws closer, Ellie, Nick, and Rick work tirelessly to grow the best poinsettias. However, Ellie's mother's animosity towards her deepens, and Ellie discovers a secret about her father that threatens to ruin everything. As Ellie struggles to keep her father's dream alive, she realizes that winning the competition is not the most important thing; what matters most is coming to terms with her past and understanding what truly matters in life.
