Poinsettias http://wunc.org en NC a Top Producer of Poinsettias http://wunc.org/post/nc-top-producer-poinsettias <p></p><p>You know the holiday season is in full swing when Christmas Trees are sprouting up on big corner lots and at most big box stores. &nbsp; North Carolina is one of the top producers of Christmas Trees.&nbsp; The state is also a top producer of another holiday plant – the poinsettia.&nbsp;</p><p>First of all – North Carolina poinsettias are grown in-doors – in greenhouses. &nbsp; The conditions have to be just right. This is a tropical plant, you know.&nbsp; And the colors! Walking into a poinsettia greenhouse at N-C State is like walking into a candy store!</p> Fri, 30 Nov 2012 11:45:00 +0000 Leoneda Inge 5595 at http://wunc.org NC a Top Producer of Poinsettias
