The brightest, whitest poinsettia on the market! This pure white variety with an ideal mid-season finish features attractive holly-shaped leaves and bracts. It provides good post-harvest performance and works well in normal and cool-finish regimes.

Plant Vigor: Medium-High
V-Shaped Habit: Narrow
Response Time in Weeks:
  • Season:Mid Season
  • Foliage:medium green
  • Natural Flower (first pollen):Nov. 20-24
  • Response Time in weeks (first pollen):8-8.5
  • Vigor:medium-high
  • Habit:narrow
  • Average Bract Size:large, holly-shaped
  • Post Harvest:good
  • Energy Efficient:
  • Varieties are rated from most () to least () efficient. Contact us for guides.

  • Cool Finish (24 hrs avg.):63°F / 17°C
  • 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.

  • Space Efficient:
  • Varieties are rated from most () to least () efficient. Contact us for guides.

  • Recommended spacing for 6":13"x13"
  • 2.5" Mini
  • 4 - 5"
  • 6"

“Alaska is truly the whitest white on a solid plant.”



  • Roots rapidly; plant from a liner at 22-24 days.
  • Apply rooting hormone to the base of cutting.
  • Start feed program around day 7.
  • Early growth is slower than some others; may not require PGR application in propagation.
  • Important to plant from liners into finished container as soon as they are well rooted.
  • Uses feed aggressively; feeding should begin early in propagation around day 7.
  • Failure to feed early enough will result in yellowing and hardening.

early finished growth

  • Very strong-branched variety must be pinched early: at day 14-16 from a liner; at day 24-26 for direct stick.
  • Failure to pinch early will result in uneven branching.
  • Apply light PGR when dominant branches are 1-1.5 in. (2.5-4 cm) using Cycocel spray at 500-750 ppm; recommended to even out branches.
  • Failure to do the early Cycocel applications can result in plants with more dominant bracts.

growing on

  • Grows steadily once branches develop, and exhibits consistent moderate growth throughout the crop until color begins.
  • Northern Climate: PGR should be limited to only Cycocel spray at 500 ppm.
  • Southern Climate: Can use Cycocel spray up to 1,000 ppm. Use 1-2 spray applications of B-Nine (1,000 ppm)/Cycocel (500 ppm) before September 20
  • Later applications of PGR should be straight Cycocel spray 500-750 ppm and/or Micro Bonzi drenches beginning in early October.

late growing stages

  • Very strong root system; requires continuous feed until finish.
  • Watch media EC; reduce feed levels to avoid rapid increase in media EC, as this indicates the plants' need for nutrition is waning.
  • High EC at finish can result in root damage, reduced shelf life and possible Pythium.
  • Can be held cool but will reduce whiteness. Pay attention to humidity and avoid dew point to prevent Botrytis.
