Poinsettia sale at JCRA - NCSU

(submitted by Vandy Bradow)

The myriad varieties of poinsettias represented at the NCSU Horticulture Science Graduate Student Association's show (Sunday 12/7) will be on sale  at the JC Raulston Arboretum Thursday and  Friday from 11 to 5, and Saturday from 10 to 1.  Pots of 4.5" diameter will be $5, 6.5" D $10, and 10" D $25.  There will be signs at both the parking lot (visitor center) and pedestrian entrances to direct you to the greenhouse where the sale will take place. Be prepared to be dazzled, and bring both checkbook and some newspaper to protect the plants from cold. Don't buy plants and leave them in the car for any significant time before you take them home or to the lucky recipient. Proceeds will go to the Association, Horticulture Field Labs, and Floriculture Research.
