Trial Sites

Breeders and growers have no easy task when it comes to developing plants suitable for Florida's climate. Encompassing USDA hardiness zones 8A - 11 is only part of the story when you factor in Florida's harsh humidity, the extremes of summer and, of course, anticipating the unanticipated. Selecting the right plants for the right place in a Florida landscape can be a challenge.

With three trial sites, Florida Flower Trials provides three different locations where plants can be assessed. While the sites are all in Central Florida, there are light, temperature and maintenance differences which affect the performance of the plants, and this conference gives you access to not just the plants, but the information you need to make the best, informed decisions.
