Christmas Joy™ Poinsettia
A week earlier than Thanksgiving, this poinsettia will color up right on time for Black Friday, hitting the early market without needing black cloth. The medium-vigor, even-branching series also makes it to retail intact and offers less shrinkage. Uniform at every stage – across all colors – Christmas Joy is great for mixes! Plus, it grows cool to save energy and money.

      Cool Finish:
      Indicates minimum temperature starting two weeks after the beginning of short days. Please note that a crop grown cooler requires more time to finish (4 to 7 days), and will have smaller bracts and darker color (for example, white may turn cream-yellow). Toward the end of the crop (two weeks prior to shipping), slowly lower the temperature for green-leafed varieties to 65°F (18°C) day/night and dark green-leafed varieties to 63°F (17°C) day/night.
