Unfortunately we can not walk around the Lincoln Park Conservatory this year during its annual holiday show, Instead, holiday plant-lovers will have to settle for the Conservatory's massive online sale, where shoppers can take home a selection of the show's poinsettias to display in their own home.

"Deck Your Halls: Poinsettias for a Purpose" is offering more than 700 colorful poinsettia varieties for sale, all of which have been hand-raised since June by the Conservatory's expert gardeners. The six- to 10-inch plants are priced between $10 to $45 according to size, and cover a range of Christmasy colors (we're particularly fond of the "Viking Cinnamon" variety, a cheery rose- and cream-toned bloomer). Best of all, all proceeds from the online sale will benefit the Conservatory's programming, helping to ensure that we can enjoy more poinsettia shows in years to come—and hopefully in person.
