The flowering holiday plants are grown by students who work in the Plant Sciences Department’s greenhouses. This year’s poinsettia project offers many shades of red, white, pink, and other variegated varieties. Sizes range from small plants in 4-inch pots to large poinsettias reaching 3 feet high, in 14-inch pots. Prices range from $10 to $100.

In addition to poinsettias, the Poly Plant Holiday Sale also features student-made wreaths, centerpieces, succulents, ornaments, and gifts. Customers are encouraged to bring their own boxes and wagons for transporting larger purchases.

The Poly Plant Shop is located on campus off of Via Carta Road. Take the Highland Drive entrance, turn left on Via Carta Road, and go to the top of the hill. For more information, call the Poly Plant Shop at (805) 756-1106 or visit
