Poinsettia Photo Gallery

Check out these beautiful poinsettias!

 Here at Mitchell’s, we are growing over 12,000 poinsettias and supplying them to our lovely customers, local churches, and businesses as far out as southern Virginia. The greenhouses will be an ocean of color and will stop you in your tracks just to take a look. One very unique thing about Mitchell’s that sets us apart from other greenhouses is our experimental poinsettia variations. 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 5th during our regular M-F hours (8 AM to 5 PM), Saturday (8 AM to 4 PM) and for 2 additional days on Sunday, November 27th and Sunday, December 4th from 12 PM to 3 PM. Ballots will be recorded 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 site in North Carolina is in Raleigh.
