For the last 11 years, we’ve collaborated and engaged with global breeding companies to test and introduce new varieties to this category.

Industry insiders looking for this season’s newest plants will get their chance on March 3rd and 4th when Costa Farms opens its two-acre Trial Garden for its annual Season Premiere.

There will be more than 360 different plant varieties, of which 55 percent will be new annual and perennial introductions. Get a sneak peek of 2020/2021 plant introductions from 28 breeders around the globe before the California Spring Trials in April.

“For the last 11 years, we’ve collaborated and engaged with global breeding companies to test and introduce new varieties to this category,” says Maria Costa Smith, Executive Vice President of Horticulture and Planning. “Our teams are dedicated to finding the top performers that will work for our customers and in consumers' homes.”

The Trial Garden offers a series of beautifully designed landscape beds, row beds to compare plant performance, hanging basket trials, as well as mixed-container garden trials. All the plants were transplanted in the garden late last year and will be evaluated over spring and summer to determine the best performers. Many of the plant breeders, as well as the Costa Farms research and development team, will be on-site to help answer questions and give additional insights on the varieties.

The Trial Garden is located at Costa Farms – Costa Color Division, 19995 SW 194th Avenue, Miami, Florida 33187.
