Here’s another great annual Holiday Event in Gainesville! The 18th Annual Poinsettia Sale & Fundraiser at the University of Florida located at the Fifield Hall greenhouses on Hull Road. I just love the Annual Poinsettia Sale at UF.
WHEN: Thursday – December 11, 2014 8:00 am to 5:30 pm AND Friday December 12, 2014 8:00am to 3:00pm
The Environmental Horticulture Club’s 18th Annual Poinsettia Fundraiser
Over 30 varieties will be offered for sale including traditional reds and novelties such as Shimmer Surprise, Orange Spice, Winter Rose and Ice Punch. 6 ½” pots are the most popular and include colorful decorative pot covers. Larger showpieces in 8” and 10” pots will also be available along with centerpiece bowls.
While you are there, you should visit the National Poinsettia Cultivar Trials. Dr. Jim Barrett and his research team will be holding their annual show at the same time as our sale. This display includes more than 6,000 plants and is the largest show in North America. There will be 150 varieties on display this year. Many of these are the newest and most novel poinsettias. Every year, Dr. Barrett conducts a consumer survey to determine preferences of the public.
Please participate in this survey while you are visiting the Poinsettia Sale!
Open to Master Gardeners and the general public. No registration required.
