Plantpeddler is hosting a side by side comparison of over 150 commercial and pre-release Poinsettia varieties, produced under true production protocols and environmental conditions. All major Poinsettia breeders will be represented in the trial, including: Beekenkamp, Dümmen Orange, Lazzeri, Rinehart Poinsettias, Selecta One, Suntory, and Syngenta Flowers. Industry representatives will be present to support their genetics and growers.

New this year is a “Lunch & Learn” meal and tech talk by Gary Vollmer, sponsored by Selecta One.

“As a leader in rooted Poinsettias, the Poinsettia Variety Day is Plantpeddler’s investment in the growers producing this crop, the brokers supporting the sales, and commitment to the breeders who bring innovation and advancement in this key genus”, said Mike Gooder, Plantpeddler.

“The Plantpeddler poinsettia comparison trial site reflects the low light growing conditions of many northern parts of the US very well. The trials are very well grown and executed, and this trial site is a critical addition to other key poinsettia trial sites in the US”, Karl Trellinger, Syngenta Flowers, added.
