Christmas Aurora is a great choice for December poinsettia sales. Its upright, narrow habit and medium bract size are ideal for higher density production and dependable shipping. Aurora features intense red bracts, and a narrow shape that makes it easy to sleeve. This reliable, predictable poinsettia works well in 6-in. (15-cm) pots. Plus, it is early to color but late to flower ­– providing an outstanding shelf life at retail and long-lasting enjoyment for the consumer.
