US: LSU AgCenter holds poinsettia show

Visitors may purchase fresh poinsettias from a wide selection of varieties on display for $10 to $12 per plant.

Visitors also will have the opportunity to take a survey and rate several poinsettia varieties. The Botanic Gardens is one of the nationwide trial locations for new and classic poinsettia varieties.

“We rely on our visitors to take part in the evaluation process to help poinsettia breeders decide which poinsettias hit the shelves next Christmas season,” said Jeff Kuehny, resident director at the Botanic Gardens at Burden.

Admission is free and open to the public. Proceeds from the sale go to fund educational programs at the Botanic Gardens. For additional information, call 225-763-3990.
