Last week, the Garden Guru said that Payne’s literally grows thousands of Poinsettias! They have grown 23 different varieties this year and in essence … that means that Payne’s has 23 different colors. We all know that Poinsettias come in red, pink and white but they come in many shades of red, pink and white! Payne’s has reds that are orange-ish red some that are maroon red – and pinks from pastel pinks to hot pinks and everything in between, Gold and white! Also, Lynn mentioned the history of the Poinsettia and how and why it became the flower that is so popular during the holidays. One more thing… listen to the Garden Guru and find out if the myth of Poinsettias being poisonous is true or not?
