poinsettia9More than 5,600 poinsettia plants — multi-hued, deep red, sparkling white and speckled — are grown in Lauritzen Gardens’ greenhouses starting as early as July for the annual holiday show in Lauritzen Gardens, 100 Bancroft Street, Omaha, Nebraska.

Hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily (closed December 25 and January 1) from Friday (November 29, 2013) through January 5, 2014.

This year’s spectacular exhibit includes a 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree, decorated holiday trees, antique sleighs and several passenger and freight model trains.

Truth be told: model trains are the stars of this year’s show. Several lines will be whistling and whirring on more than 300 feet of track through the floral display and around dozens of miniature Omaha landmark structures, all constructed of natural materials.

Added features include live holiday music, the opportunity for a meal or snack from the café and a crackling fireplace.
