Christmas Aurora Poinsettia
Grow Eve and then Aurora to cover your red poinsettia needs for the whole season. Both have fabulous color retention for long-lasting shelf life, and feature similar intense red bracts, with a shape and orientation that make them easy to sleeve. Following the same culture regime, Christmas Eve Red and Christmas Aurora offer a similar medium-high vigor and upright habit that are ideal for 6-in. (15-cm) pots. These two holiday classics go hand-in-hand, providing reliability and predictable timing across a wide range of environments, and are excellent options for Southern growers. Christmas Eve Red is available as a mini cutting.
