Plantpeddler Poinsettia Variety Day: “Testing the Best in the Midwest”

In a year with nearly everything cancelled, following Plantpeddler's
successful Variety Day in August, they look forward to this opportunity to bring the Poinsettia community together.

The Poinsettia business is ever evolving; this is your opportunity to stay on top of the industry. See honest side by side comparisons of over 150 commercial and pre-release varieties, produced under true production protocols and environmental conditions. All Horticulture professionals in production, distribution, wholesale, and retail are invited. "We are committed to ensuring a safe and secure event."

As added bonus at this year’s event, the Fantasy Colors Poinsettia Painting Guru, Andrew Lee of Gloeckner, will be doing demonstrations in a special segment called “What’s your Fantasy? Paint Time Fun with Dr. Lee.” It promises to be enlightening and entertaining.

Rooms are being held at the (almost world-famous) Cresco Super 8 Motel for Wednesday night (Dec. 2nd). Please call (563) 547-9988 to make a reservation and mention the Plantpeddler Poinsettia Trial. A pre-event social and meal is planned for Wednesday evening.

"In respect to all attendees, please follow current protocols for proper distancing and other recommendations. If you are feeling ill, at risk, or have health concerns, please refrain from attending."

"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
