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.

Summer Trial - - Week of 7/18 - REGISTER HERE

Mum Trial - Week of 9/26

Poinsettia Trial - Week of 11/28

 


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. The past few years, we have also offered a poinsettia trial in early December.

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.

Benefits:

  • Evaluate new varieties & introductions
  • Observe growth habits and performance
  • Receive cultural information and grower advice on open house dates
  • Get new ideas for plantings
