The National Poinsettia Cultivar Trials were established in an effort to bring a thorough body of research and information to poinsettia growers across the country. This site and the information provided within is derived from the research and trialing efforts of three universities (Purdue University, University of Florida - Gainesville, North Carolina State University), one commercial site (Homewood Nursery, NC ), and five commercial breeders (Paul Ecke Ranch, Syngenta Flowers, Selecta First Class, Dummen, Florema).
