Abstract

a new cultivar of poinsettia will be in plentiful supply for the 1965 holiday season in California market places. This relatively new introduction, named ‘Paul Mikkelsen’ (after the plant breeder), has outstanding keeping qualities. If placed in the north window and properly watered, it may remain attractive beyond the Easter season. This endurance is unequalled in the standard cultivars. The bracts are not as large as the older cultivars, but they have the same vivid red color. Because of its upright stem habit, stake support is not usually required (cover and photo 2).
