Celebrating Poinsettia Day in Rochester

Poinsettia Day on Wednesday, December 12th is the perfect opportunity to start decorating your home or office for a more festive look. It's also a wonderful and thoughtful early Christmas gift for friends, family, service personnel, clients, or colleagues. Our Rochester flower shop is filled to the brim with Christmas plants, including poinsettias. We offer poinsettias in red, white, and mixed, depending on availability. You can also choose from available containers to display them in. Also, we can create basket arrangements that include poinsettias along with other seasonal greenery and blooming plants for a special Christmas gift. Be sure to place your order today through our Rochester flower shop or our website. What makes poinsettias so great besides being known as a symbol of Christmas is their long-lasting display and ease of care. With just a little attention, poinsettias can last many years and continue re-blooming each holiday season. Once you get a poinsettia plant, be sure to place it in direct sunlight. This is a tropical plant that enjoys sunlight, warmth, and humidity. Also, it's important to maintain moist soil for the poinsettia plant. After the holidays, the plant can continue to live indoors until the summertime where it can be moved outdoors. Come fall, the poinsettia plant will need periods of darkness to slow its blooming cycle. Then, along with fertilizer and a return to sunlight, it will be ready to bloom again.
