Hundreds of poinsettias will be on display throughout the holiday season at Como Park Zoo and Conservatory in St. Paul, Minnesota.

The annual holiday flower show has been a tradition at the park since 1925, and it remains one of the most anticipated and visited events at the conservatory.

This year the Sunken Garden will showcase a sizzling floral spectrum of these well-known Christmas flowers. Colors will range from traditional reds and soft pinks to apricot, burgundy and maroon, according to the Star Tribune newspaper.

The show will also feature thousands of other fresh flowers.

It is opened 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day from December 4 through January 23, including Christmas.

The cost of attending the show is free, although the conservatory does appreciate donations.

Individuals who plan on giving these flowering plants as a gift should remember that they require direct sunlight whenever possible and are best maintained with temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit, according to
