Plantpeddler Poinsettia Variety Day to Take Place Dec. 2

Plantpeddler Poinsettia Variety Day is scheduled to take place Dec. 2, 2021 in Cresco, Iowa. This year, 160+ commercial and pre-release poinsettia varieties are being trialed, produced under true production protocols and environmental conditions.

All major Poinsettia breeders will be represented in the trial, including: Beekenkamp, Dümmen Orange, Lazzeri, Rinehart Poinsettias, Selecta One, Suntory and Syngenta Flowers. Breeder representatives will be present to support their genetics and growers.

Also at this year’s event, the Fantasy Colors Poinsettia Painting Guru, Dr. Andrew Lee of Ball Horticulture, will be doing demonstrations in a special segment called “What’s Your Fantasy? Paint Time Fun with Dr. Lee.” It promises to be enlightening and entertaining.

The Plantpeddler Poinsettia Trial is one of the premier trials in the country and the northernmost trial in the United States. It reflects commercial production under variable fall conditions of the Upper Midwest. It is grown with minimal enhancement with growth regulators to show natural vigor and habit of varieties.

If you would like to attend, an RSVP recommended.
