Plant breeder Karl Trellinger, in center, leads a tour at Purdue University to give plant breeders from across the country a sneak peak at poinsettia research under way in the university's horticulture and landscape architecture department during Purdue Poinsettia Day on Tuesday (12/3). Poinsettia varieties – with exotic names like Christmas cookie, Amazone peppermint and Cortez burgundy – allow growers to make side-by-side comparisons to see what varieties they will sell next year.
