Deck Your Halls: Poinsettias for a Purpose sale

11/18 Update:  The Poinsettias for a Purpose sale is sold out! Thanks to everyone who supported the Conservancy and Conservatory by purchasing these unique holiday flowers. If you have any questions, please email us.

While we are sad to announce that the Lincoln Park Conservatory will not open for its much-loved annual winter show this year, we’re excited to offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to bring the show home with you! All of the poinsettias raised by the Conservatory staff for the show need to find a new home for the holidays.

During our “Deck Your Halls: Poinsettias for a Purpose” online sale, the Conservancy will sell the nearly 700 gold, orange, and pink poinsettias grown by the Conservatory staff for the Winter Show. The sale is currently open and will run through Sunday, November 29th, or when all plants are sold.

Funds from the sale help the Conservancy run the docent and greeter programs at the Conservatory, as well as other educational programs. This money also helps buy plants, fund seasonal shows, feed the fish, and assist with a number of other smaller projects in the Conservatory, including making the 2021 Winter Show even better!

All sales are final with no refunds, returns, or exchanges. Plants must be picked up in-person (contactless) at the Lincoln Park Conservatory between December 3rd and December 6th, 2020. We cannot ship plants. If you cannot pick up your plants within the sale window, we will work with you to find an alternative date.

Don’t miss this amazing opportunity! Bring these floral splashes of color to your home for the holidays and support the much-loved Lincoln Park Conservatory and the Lincoln Park Conservancy, the non-profit that supports the Park. Visit our sale site and follow us on social media (FB: @chicagolincolnpark IG: @lpconservancy) for more details.
