The Macfarlane Greenhouses, the New Hampshire Agricultural Experiment Station, and the Thompson School horticultural facility host the popular Poinsettia Trials Open House Thursday, Nov. 29, through Saturday,Dec. 1, 2012. Visitors to the free event, now in its seventh year, will enjoy more than 100 poinsettia varieties and assist in research by recording their favorites from among new and different varieties.

The Poinsettia Trials at UNH is a collaborative event to bring research to breeders, growers, and the public. Similar trials take place at universities and commercial greenhouses across the country, allowing breeders and growers to evaluate regional differences in the growth and performance of new cultivars. This valuable information provides a basis for choosing the best cultivars for a particular growing environment and market.
