COLUMBIA — MU's College of Agriculture, Food and Natural Resources is selling poinsettias through the Horticulture Club and the Tiger Garden.
The Horticulture Club's annual poinsettia sale will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday in the Anheuser Busch Natural Resources Building. The plants will be available in a variety of sizes and colors. Small plants start at $3.
Tiger Garden will sell poinsettias through finals week, or Dec. 14. Prices start at $12.95 for traditional arrangements and $14.95 for dazzling poinsettias, or poinsettias that are dyed and have sparkles on the leaves.
The plants are available in six inch or eight inch pots, said Clarissa Brown, a student manager at the florist shop.
The tiger paw poinsettia, a Tiger Garden specialty, starts at $16.95.
"It's our true trademark," Brown said. "It's gold with tiger paws on the leaves."
