The cost to purchase is $20 each, and a portion of the proceeds benefit The Peel Compton Foundation annual programming. There are 400 red poinsettias and 100 white poinsettias available for purchase. Each poinsettia purchase comes with a Thank You card, making these the perfect gift for the holiday season.
“The poinsettia is the perfect gift for your loved ones, it brings to mind cherished holidays of the past. To me it represents a bit of holiday cheer and tradition. If you are like me, you’re thinking, I wonder if Col Samuel Peel and Mary Peel enjoyed Poinsettias during their holiday traditions? I bet they did because the Poinsettias common name is derived from Joel Roberts Poinsett, the first U.S. minister to Mexico who is credited with its introduction to the United States in the 1820’s! Thank you, Joel Roberts Poinsett!”, Laura Brewer, Peel Mansion Horticulturist said.
We will be hosting a curbside, no contact pick-up, on December 4th and December 5th at The Peel Mansion from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Thank you for your support of The Peel Compton Foundation.
