URI Poinsettia Day Sale rescheduled to Dec. 13

Snow postpones annual event by one week

KINGSTON, R.I. --December 8, 2003 -- The University of Rhode Island’s annual Poinsettia Day Sale scheduled for last Saturday was snowed out, but that doesn’t mean that area residents are out of luck. The 97 varieties of poinsettias will instead be on sale on Saturday, Dec. 13 from 9 a.m. to noon in the URI Greenhouses.

The sale will feature dozens of varieties of poinsettias that are unavailable from most retailers. The URI event will include 50 variations on the conventional red poinsettia, as well as pinks, whites, purples, yellows, variegated and speckled varieties. There are also reds tinged with green, reds edged in white, standard sizes and dwarf sizes, and even a variety that looks like a rose in bloom.

Poinsettia Day is sponsored by the URI Master Gardener Association, the URI Cooperative Extension Education Center, the Department of Plant Sciences, the College of the Environment and Life Sciences, and the URI Plant Science Club.

The URI Greenhouses are located at Upper College and Flagg Roads on the Kingston Campus. For more information, call 874-2900.
