Holding a fundraiser is one of the best ways to spread awareness about a cause while earning extra funds. Whether you’re running a non-profit, raising money for your church, or trying to fund your school’s field trips, holding a poinsettia fundraiser is a great option. After all, the holidays are right around the corner: there’s no better option than selling beautiful poinsettias.
Poinsettias have always been associated with the end of the year since that’s when the perennial plants showcase their gorgeous red color. While their beauty is not technically derived from the ‘flowering’ part of the plant, their luscious red leaves retain their color for long periods of time, making them an ideal piece of decor around the holidays. Many commercial greenhouses wait until the poinsettias are just right. That way, they are able to get the timing of the red leaves to appear between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Since they can successfully bloom year after year with the proper care, these perennials are a plant that keeps on giving.
Poinsettias are also one of the most popular plants for celebrating Christmas. The plant is considered a symbol of the Star of Bethlehem because of its pointed shape and the blood-red quality of its leaves resembling the blood of Jesus Christ. Even if you’re not particularly religious, however, the red and green aspects of the poinsettia naturally make it a shoo-in for America’s favorite Christmas plant.
Because poinsettias are associated with the holidays, holding a poinsettia fundraiser is the perfect way to earn money for your organization. Not only are these flowers the perfect gift for loved ones, but they’re hardy enough to survive outdoors for winter decoration as well. Just about anyone can be drawn by the allure of this popular plant. Since they also come in white varieties, it’s common for people to buy more than one color to decorate their space. If your organization wants to hold a fundraiser, there’s no better option than investing in poinsettias.
You can also pad your poinsettia fundraiser with other options, too. Schwartz‘s Greenhouse can also provide you with a variety of wreaths, both decorated and plain. Our greenhouses are equipped to supply your organization with all your holiday needs.
The most popular home-grown vegetable might be the tomato, but the poinsettia is the ideal winter plant. Earning money around the holidays is essential, whether you’re giving back or trying to raise money for your next cause.
