It looks like the poinsettia has grown arms — but in reality it is Ruz Shokrollahi, who is part of the 2009 Poinsettia Enterprise Project at Cal Poly.
The annual poinsettia sale is the culmination of the growing season that commenced in spring and features plants of many different colors and sizes. Painted and glittery poinsettias are also featured this year and can be made to order.
Poly Plant Shop is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is located on Via Carta (off Highland Drive).
The sale is going on through mid-December. Visit www.polyplantshop.com for more information and special events, or call 756-1106.
