Poinsettias on trial
By Jennifer Doup


Purdue's horticulture department showcased over 120 poinsettia varieties at the White River Gardens' winter display, "Holiday Toyland." Poinsettias from Purdue's national poinsettia cultivar trials were featured throughout the display during December, including 30 new cultivars from across the world. Visitors enjoyed both old and new cultivars and then could cast a vote for their favorite poinsettias. The visitor's opinions will help determine what varieties will be available in upcoming years.
