Poinsettia and Amaryllis Sale
The 2022 sale was a success and we plan to do it again in November, 2023.
The 2022 Friends of the Gardens poinsettia and amaryllis sale was a hybrid event with online sales starting on October 31 through November 11 and in person sale on November 18. There were red, white and pink poinsettias, 10" poinsettia centerpieces, and two types of red and white amaryllis bulbs. Foil color options were silver, gold, green, purple, and red.
Proceeds from the sale benefit the Gardens to help defray expenses for student labor, plantings, and necessary materials.
