Mitchell’s Nursery is gearing up for their largest poinsettia season to date. Here at Mitchell’s, we are growing over 12,000 poinsettias in a whopping 96 varieties. We’re supplying them for our lovely customers, local churches, and businesses as far out as southern Virginia. Our Greenhouse during the Holiday Season is an ocean of dazzling, jaw-dropping colors. One very unique thing about Mitchell’s that sets us apart from other greenhouses are our experimental poinsettia varieties. Some of our poinsettias are test trials for poinsettia breeders, which is why some of the poinsettias we have here are named with numbers. They will be available for purchase starting in the middle of November. Instead of a formal Poinsettia Open House, this year Mitchell’s is hosting poinsettia voting from November 27th to December 10th during our regular M-F hours (8 AM to 5PM), Saturday (8AM-4PM) and for 2 additional days on Sunday, November 28th and Sunday December 5th from 12PM to 3PM. Ballots will be tabulated and the information will be sent back to the breeders. Mitchell’s is one of just a few testing sites in the United States. The only other testing sites in North Carolina are in Raleigh.
