Annual OSU-OKC Poinsettia Sale returns
OSU-OKC to hold annual Poinsettia Sale
Plants to go on sale Dec. 4-7 and Dec. 14 at John E. Kirkpatrick Horticulture Center
OKLAHOMA CITY (Nov. 21, 2019) – One of Oklahoma City’s favorite holiday traditions is set to return this year as Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City prepares to host its annual Poinsettia Sale.
This year’s sale is scheduled for Dec. 4-7, with an additional sale date on Dec. 14, at the Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City (OSU-OKC) John E. Kirkpatrick Horticulture Center, 400 N Portland Ave.
Sale hours will be 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays, while supplies last.
During the sale, the OSU-OKC greenhouses will pop with thousands of poinsettias in a variety of hues. This year, 17 varieties will be featured, including Prestige Red, Gold Rush, Ice Crystal, Winter Rose and the popular Orange Spice.
The sale will also include four varieties of Princettias – a more compact version of a poinsettia with an even dome of colorful flowers. Princettias will be available in pink, hot pink, pure white and red.
In addition, a selection of succulents and tropical plants will be available for sale.
Some poinsettias sold at the sale are grown on campus starting in early spring. The nearly nine-month process involves diligent and careful care on the part of OSU-OKC horticulture students, faculty and staff.
Proceeds from the sale benefit OSU-OKC horticulture students and programs. Cash, checks and credit cards are accepted.
