Velvet-soft, locally-grown poinsettias make the holiday season feel complete. Several OAN Retail and Greenhouse Chapter members donated hundreds of the red and white plants to add a touch of greenhouse grower magic to the Oregon State Capitol rotunda for the Christmas tree lighting ceremony and other holiday events. The vibrant flowers help showcase Oregon’s $1 billion nursery industry to legislators.
The OAN Retail and Greenhouse Chapter organized the decorative effort. They would like to give special thanks to the following growers for their continued support of the annual poinsettia drive: Al's Garden Center, F & B Farm & Nursery, Fessler Nursery Co., Iwasaki Bros. Inc. Koida Greenhouses, Peoria Gardens Inc., Griffin Greenhouse Supply, Skagit Gardens, Spring Creek Gardens Inc. and Smith Gardens Inc.
