December 10 – Poinsettias and Holiday Trees
Each year Smithsonian Gardens grows hundreds of poinsettias and decorates majestic evergreen trees to display in the Smithsonian museums and Castle. Watch as Smithsonian Gardens’ extensive poinsettia crop makes its magical transition from small, green slips grown in our greenhouse facility to cheery, colorful holiday plants on display in the interiors of our museums. Then be dazzled by our Interiors Team, learn some of their decorating tricks, and watch as they transform a tree into a festive creation.
