Holiday Poinsettia Show in Omaha

Submitted by on November 7, 2018 – 8:57 amNo Comment

Holiday Poinsettia Show, Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha, NebraskaIf it’s November, it must be time to make plans to see one of the lavish holiday flower shows on offer.

A Holiday Poinsettia Show is open in Lauritzen Gardens – Omaha’s Botanical Center, 100 Bancroft Street, Omaha, Nebraska, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily from November 23, 2018, through January 6, 2019 (yes, Road Trips Gardeners: it will be closed December 25 and January 1).

Thousands of poinsettias bursting with rich, vibrant color will fill the floral display hall. In the center will be a 20-foot-tall poinsettia tree surrounded by a cascade of twinkling white lights, glittering ornaments and the whir and whistle of model garden trains.

More than 5000 poinsettias in 25 different varieties were grown for last year’s display, and more are planned this season. Look for varieties of multi-hued, deep red, sparkling white, and speckled poinsettias that vary in hue, texture, height and bloom time. Varieties will be replaced as needed to provide an ever-changing display.

To build the holiday ambience, model garden trains will chug around dozens of miniature Omaha-area landmarks, such as the First National Tower, Woodmen Tower, Union Pacific’s headquarters, the Rose Theater and numerous Old Market buildings.

Standard garden admission rates ($10 + tax for adults) apply for this event.
