Poinsettias are native to Central America/Mexico thus are considered a TROPICAL PLANT. When we say our poinsettias are "greenhouse fresh" that is getting as close as you can get to a tropical environment. The Carlson family started growing poinsettias in the 1940s and my father said it was the hardest crop to grow. New hybrid varieties are easier to grow, but they are still a tropical plant. That means a poinsettia purchased directly from a greenhouse is going to be the best quality. In a home environment, poinsettias should be displayed away from cold or hot draft, in good daylight and normal temperatures. Water thoroughly when dry and then let them get to a dry point before re-watering.

Red poinsettias are the most popular color, followed by pink and white. New novelty varieties are speckled, marbled and even some with curly leaves. Size pots range from 4" to 12" with the most popular being 6.6", 7" and 8". We deliver our poinsettias in protective wrap and the pot is covered with florist grade foil and bow.
