Welcome to the Lucas Greenhouses Trial Gardens

Over the years, Lucas Greenhouses has become the industry’s east coast trial destination. Visitors travel great distances to see the newest varieties and top performers before they even hit the market.

Starting in July and running through September you can view almost 1,000 large pots of vegetative annuals on display in our nearly 4 acre trial area. Or you can visit us in late September to view our mum and aster trial which features several hundred different varieties from multiple breeders.

Also, our landscape customers have found our in-ground trial areas extremely helpful. Each year we continue to expand these beds, giving you more ideas for future plantings.
If you would like to view the trials, please call ahead to make an appointment. This way we can have someone available to show you through the trials.

Each year we host two Trial Events, one in the summer and one in the fall.  We will post the dates and links for registration as the dates are set. This year we are excited to announce that we will be hosting our first ever Poinsettia Trial.
