As the holidays approach, take advantage of the cheer that the Friends of the Smoky Hill Museum’s colorful poinsettias and greenery wreaths bring. The Museum’s poinsettias are long-lasting, nursery-grown plants, available in seven vibrant shades for 2021. The flowering plants will brighten home, office or church, to encourage loved ones or shut-ins and to reduce holiday stress for yourself and others.

Both options are multi-stem plants available in solid red, pink or white, plus four special shades for 2022: Marble (cream leaves with bold pink stripes or striations; pictured); Jingle Bell (red leaves with cream speckles); Christmas Mouse (red with rounded petals); and Christmas Beauty Queen (pinkish red with cream striations.) Also available is the stunning 36-inch Large, only in Christmas red for $40, ideal for fireplace, foyer or doorway use.
