Every year, the Costa Farms research and development team plants more than 500 different varieties of annuals and perennials in the Miami, Florida, Trial Garden. They work with plant breeders from around the world.

2018 Costa Farms Open House
This year, the 2-acre Trial Garden will be open by appointment between 7.00 a.m. and 5.00 p.m. every day between Monday, January 15, 2018 and Friday, January 19, 2018.

In addition to all the new annual and perennial varieties (many of which won't be available for sale until 2019), you can also see landscape beds, a place for a stroll or to take pictures. The landscaping beds are framed by lush hedges, gravel pathways, and swaths of healthy lawn.

Costa Farms will also be displaying hanging baskets and container gardens, so you can see how many of these new varieties look with other plants.

The Trial Garden is open by appointment. To make an appointment, reach out via direct message on the Facebook page or send an e-mail at By making an appointment, you can be sure to have a tour guide present to help answer questions and show you around.
