Members of the horticulture industry are invited to Cresco, IA, on Thursday, Nov, 30, for the Plantpeddler Poinsettia Variety Day. The event features more than 160 commercial and pre-release poinsettia varieties, produced under true production protocols and environmental conditions. Poinsettias from all major breeders will be represented in the trial, including Beekenkamp, Dümmen Orange, Lazzeri, Rinehart Poinsettias, Selecta One, Suntory, and Express Seed Company. Breeder representatives will be present to support their genetics and growers.
The Plantpeddler Poinsettia Trial is one of the premier trials in the country and the northernmost trial in the U.S. It reflects commercial production under variable fall conditions of the Upper Midwest. This trial is grown with minimal enhancement of growth regulators to show natural vigor and habit of varieties.
It is recommended to RSVP for the event. You can register by using this link, email the Plantpeddler team at [email protected], or call 800-827-1654 to RSVP. A pre-event social and meal is planned for Wednesday evening, at Atomic Pizza in downtown Cresco.
