13 New Poinsettias and Succulents for Holiday Sales, Crafting, and Landscaping

Greenhouse Grower recently focused on poinsettias and succulents in the Feb. 2018 print issue. Succulents continue to be hot items with consumers. It’s no surprise they’re still popular products. A quick Google search gives you a hint of the many creative ways people can use them to decorate their homes, landscapes, and offices. Altman Plants is one of the largest breeders and growers of succulent plants in the world. Marketing Director Ingeborg Carr talks about why the succulent market still thrives in “Hot-Selling Succulents Still Hip – With No End in Sight.”

Poinsettias, with their lasting, vibrant colors, are an in-demand holiday staple. According to Greenhouse Grower’s 2017 Poinsettia Survey, ‘Prestige Red’ was a top Black Friday seller, along with ‘Christmas Day Red’ and ‘Ice Punch.’ And while traditional reds were bestsellers last year, interest continues to grow for white and novelty varieties.

Greenhouse Grower reached out to breeders to ask them to share their latest and greatest succulent and poinsettia varieties with you. Here are 12 introductions new to the market for retail sales in 2018 and 2019.
