Poinsettias: What you don't want to miss in December

Every year our dedicated greenhouse staff works very hard to grow over 3,000 different varieties of poinsettias. These poinsettias are used to decorate the Garden Center and offices throughout the Garden. The poinsettias will be up until December 27th, but here is a insiders look at all the amazing poinsettias at the Garden Center.

The red glitter poinsettia pictured above and to the side is my personal favorite. No two flowers are alike, some have a striped look with red and white, others are red with white dots. No matter what the pattern is, it is always beautiful.

These large poinsettias are achieved by what is called pinching. Each flower is its own plant, all other flowers are pinched off when they are small that way all the energy goes to build one large flower. 

Pictured Below: the pink peppermint poinsettia is mostly pink but has red dots sprinkled over the petals.

The Holly Berry poinsettia gives a twist to the classic by added beautiful variegated leaf. It is a beautiful way to add a little something new to any classic Christmas scene. 

Pictures Above: Agnes holds a Pink Ice Punch Poinsettia named for the pink stripe in the middle of the red petal. Also pictured is Marian Pink and Peter Star White Poinsettia.

Pictured Above: a close up on a Peter White poinsettia, unlike other "White" poinsettias that give more of a yellow tone, the Peter White poinsettia is considered a true white.

The main display in the Garden Center this year is our Christmas Train.
