Poinsettia pinetorum is an herbaceous perennial with smooth stems to about 2 feet tall. It has alternate, very narrow leaves that range from 2 to 6 inches and about 1/4 inch wide or less.The uppermost leaves are generally red at the base. The insignificant, yellowish flowers are 5 petaled and in clusters at the tips of the branches.

This plant is endemic to the pine rockland of southern Florida. It is found only in Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties.

Poinsettia pinetorum is on the Florida Endangered Species list
