When you think of poinsettias, images of Christmas probably flood your mind: red and green foliage, festive arrangements, and holiday spirit. But there's a new, radiant bloom in town—Princettia®, the autumnal princess, bringing with her a fresh palette of bright pinks and pure whites. Dubbed the princess of autumn, Princettia® offers a delightful deviation from the conventional poinsettia colors, effectively opening a new market and extending sales opportunities for growers.

Feel the Autumn Magic With Princettia®

Princettia® is a type of poinsettia, a.k.a. Euphorbia pulcherrima, developed by the breeders of MNP / Suntory. But what makes Princettia® so remarkable? Apart from its compact structure and early-flowering attributes, its striking hues of pink and white have drawn the attention of florists and consumers globally, way before the Christmas period even begins. And rightfully so!

So, who said poinsettias are only fit and available for the holiday season? Princettias are a treat for your home and outdoors already in autumn. Every year, as leaves start to fall and the air becomes crisp, Princettias light up homes with their fresh, modern appearance.
