Trial Gardens

Will These Plants Make the Grade?

A trial garden is one where plants are grown specifically for evaluation and testing. In our trial garden, the horticulture team works with nurseries to evaluate plants for how well they will perform for the average gardener or landscape in Palm Beach County. Our trial gardens serve as the southern trial gardens for Proven Winners plants, and they generously provide most of the trial plants. Also, being a trial garden, this area will not only feature plant cultivars that perform well in our unique South Florida climate, but also those that do not.
