December 9, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Poinsettias are a hallmark in the winter flower shows at Garfield Park Conservatory, Lincoln Park Conservatory and in winter and holiday displays around the US. Join the Chicago Park District’s Deputy Director of Horticulture, Peter Vrotsos and Chicago Park District Floriculturist at Lincoln Park Conservatory, Pedro Ramirez as they talk about the history and use of poinsettias and how to care for them beyond the holidays. You’ll also get a behind-the-scenes look at how they are grown for the winter flower shows and go on a virtual walk through the Garfield Park Conservatory’s Winter Flower Show: Gratitude. This program is free and donations are appreciated from those who are able to off-set programming costs.
