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 5,000 plants and is the largest show in North America. There will be 140 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 feel welcome to participate in this survey while you are visiting the Poinsettia Sale! This year (2016) we will in fact be selling these novel and experimental varieties so keep your eyes out for some of the most elegant poinsettias out there!
