UGA-grown poinsettias

Students in UGA’s Tau chapter of Pi Alpha Xi Horticultural Honor Society will hold their annual poinsettia sale Dec. 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Greenhouse 13 on Riverbend Road.

Students in Paul Thomas’ greenhouse management course grew the crop of 600 poinsettias from cuttings over the course of fall semester. Poinsettias will be available for $10. There is a $2 charge for optional green foil pot liner and red ribbon. Poinsettias will be sleeved for easy transport. The students will accept cash, check or credit cards. The proceeds of the sale will fund student travel to conferences, classroom supplies and other club activities.

This year, light pink, white and ruffled red poinsettias will be available in addition to the classic red poinsettias.
