2016 Poinsettia Open Houses

— Written By

2016 Poinsettia Open Houses will be held Tuesday, November 29, for growers and industry suppliers and Sunday, December 4, for the public. Growers are welcome to visit on either day.

Both events are free, and no registration is required.

NC State Floriculture is part of a national poinsettia program that tests poinsettia cultivars to determine which ones are best for consumers and for producers. You will have a chance to see these cultivars yourself and vote for your favorites. Over one hundred different cultivars of poinsettias—including numerous new experimental cultivars—will be on display. Stop by to see and take photographs in front of the famous 9′ tall poinsettia tree. Enjoy poinsettia gardens and decorated poinsettias. Help us decide which poinsettias are North Carolina’s favorites by voting for your favorite poinsettias.
