The city of Toronto, Canada is getting into the holiday spirit with a Christmas flower show at the city's Allan Gardens Conservatory.

Each year, the conservatory is decorated and filled with thousands of fresh flowers, flowering plants and over 40 different varieties of poinsettias.

This year's show will feature a polar-bear-shaped topiary and polar-bear-theme crafts, as well as a new white variety of the Christmas flower called polar bear poinsettia, according to

The Allan Gardens Conservatory display will also showcase Christmas rose poinsettias and carousel poinsettias, as well as cyclamens, Jerusalem cherries and azaleas.

The conservatory is open seven days a week from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Christmas flower show will run through January 9, 2011. Admission to the event is free, although organizers encourage visitors to bring a donation for a local food pantry.

Allan Gardens Conservatory is over 100 years old and has over 16,000 square feet of greenhouse area. It contains tropical plants from all over the world.

When the Christmas flower show is closed in January, the conservatory will feature the spring show of bulbs, which will run through the end of March.

Seeing new varieties of flowers at an event can often inspire individuals to purchase fresh flowers for themselves or for someone else as a gift.
