Colorado State University 2009 Poinsettia Cultivar Evaluation

CSU 2009 Poinsettia trial. on Twitpic
At Colorado State University, we conducted poinsettia cultivar evaluations for 10 years. Our last year to conduct a trial was conducted in 2004 with 139 cultivars. (click here to see the report)

For the production year of 2009, we have decided to return to conducting this trial. We have 80 cutlivars that have been submitted to the trial by our cooperators. The cultivars are listed below.

Please consider following the trial through the production season. I will provide periodic updates with photographs. And as always, our thanks go out to our sponsors, including Welby Gardens of Denver who rooted many of the cuttings.

The CSU 2009 Poinsettia Open House date is currently scheduled for Tuesday 1 December 2009 at the W.D. Holley Plant Enironmental Research Center Greenhouses. The address is 630 West Lake Street in Fort Collins. (click here for a map)
