FARMINGTON, Minn. (WCCO) – Inside a huge green house in Farmington, thousands of poinsettias are being packaged and ready to go.

Dale Bachman, president and CEO of Bachman’s Floral, says the plants are destined for the Twin Cities metro area.

“Our crop this year is about 85,000 total pots,” Bachman said.

The most popular color is red, but Bachman says they have 32 other varieties as well.

“Pinks, marble, ice punch and red glitter,” he said

Bachman says the floral company is consistently one of the biggest poinsettia growers in the upper Midwest.

“As soon as Thanksgiving is over, then we really start to ship the poinsettias, and there’s nothing that dresses up the home more than a beautiful poinsettia,” he said.

It takes six to nine months to grow the flowers.
