Poinsettia Heaven

Processed with VSCO with c1 preset

I had the privilege to take a sneak peek into one of Bachman’s greenhouses’ where they grow their yearly supply of poinsettias. All I can say is, WOW. Walking among 70,000 poinsettias is truly amazing.

While on my visit, I was able to talk with the owners and growers at Bachman’s so I figured I’d round up some fun facts that I learned!

  • Bachman’s produces over 30 varieties of Poinsettias including a Poinsettia tree! They range in size from 2 inches to 4 feet
  • 70% of Bachman customers purchase a red Poinsettia
  • Bachman’s began growing Poinsettias in 1931 and is regarded as on the best growers of poinsettias in the US

They also do a lot of custom orders with painted poinsettias which I was able to paint one myself to take home too!
