It’s a sea of Holiday Red today at the University of Florida’s Fifield Hall with the annual poinsettia sale underway. WUFT-FM’s Katerina Sardi says there is also holiday green, pink and more.
Hundreds of people are expected to support the Environmental Horticulture Club during the 16th annual Poinsettia Sale. Sale organizer Gina DeFalco says the club is the only one that receives the different varieties of poinsettia, and that selection is what brings in customers year after year.
She says they are expecting to sell about six thousand plants this year.
