Heritage Garden Club project organizers ordered two large poinsettias and 111 standard size plants, however, they were surprised by an additional six poinsettias donated by the Campbell Road Nursery, Inc. of Raleigh (campbellrdnursery.com/) for a total of 119 plants. Seventeen of the poinsettias are located in the VA's CLC dining room and the rest are displayed in the chapel and vestibule.
"Campbell Road Nursery really have some of the best, and healthiest plants I have seen. They are big, full and vibrant," said Project Chair Marcia Loudon.
A couple of Durham garden clubs purchased half of the poinsettias in honor or memorial of services members. The Forest Hills Garden Club ordered 25 poinsettias and Heritage Garden Club members ordered 27 plus the two large poinsettias.
