The holiday season has arrived in technicolour at Niagara Parks’ Annual Poinsettia Show, a visitor favourite and Niagara tradition for over 65 years. The theme of this year’s show, Technicolour Christmas, showcases extravagant holiday arrangements with a colourful kaleidoscopic twist.
See vibrant poinsettias, cyclamen, azaleas, Christmas cactus, paperwhite narcissus and more at the Annual Poinsettia Show on display at the Floral Showhouse until January 12, 2020!
Niagara Parks’ Annual Poinsettia Shows are planned and designed a year in advance by teams of horticulturalists, floral designers, arborists and growers that start propagating plant cuttings for the annual winter show as early as the start of each summer.
This year’s shows features over 1000 poinsettias grown in-house, including 350 standard and 400 bush poinsettia varieties. A spectacular rainbow of lights illuminates the Floral Showhouse’s North House complementing its brilliant florals in orange, yellow, purple, green and red. A candy cane theme in the Centre House showcases a magnificent red and white poinsettia tree which holds 200 poinsettia plants alone!
Capture your experience at this year’s Annual Poinsettia Show with a photo inside Santa’s sleigh! A new addition to this year’s show, the sleigh sits inside the North House’s technicolour floral display with a dazzling rainbow string of lights hanging above.
After a multi-year hiatus, the holiday poinsettia tree is back and takes centre stage inside the Centre House. A focal point of this year’s show, the impressive tree is made up of 200 poinsettias and surrounded by arrays of festive red and white plants completing the look of the house’s candy cane theme.
