Poinsettia Plants Direct From Grower

The Poinsettia plant is the #1 live plant sold in the United States today and also the most misspelled (pointsetta, pointsettas, pointsettia, poinsetta or poinsettas) . A native of Mexico, the poinsettia was introduced to the US in 1828 and has become a symbol of the winter holiday season. Representing over 85% of holiday plant sales, the poinsettia plant is a Christmas tradition. Schaefer’s Greenhouse offers a wide variety of poinsettias. Each year we grow over 60 varieties of poinsettia plants in 20 or more colors – from traditional red to burgundy, white, peach, and even marble or speckled varieties. Enjoy a Schaefer’s poinsettia plant in your home this holiday season!

At Schaefers, poinsettia plant production begins in January with the arrival of fresh stock plants. Over the course of the year, we propagate new plants, ship cuttings to other local greenhouses and garden centers and tend to the plants that will be sold for the holiday season. Our poinsettias are raised in a professional environment with automated lighting and temperature controls, as well as generations of grower experience. The result – our plants last longer and produce more vivid blooms than those of our competitors. When you buy a poinsettia plant from Schaefer Greenhouses, you can be sure that you are getting a florist-quality, vibrant plant!

Please note, custom orders for specific colors and sizes must be placed by June 1st to guarantee delivery for the Christmas season.
