Behind the Scenes at Costa Farms

We love plants! Our wholesale nursery produces millions of gorgeous plants in three U.S. states. Get an inside look at what we do.

Trial Gardens

Our trialing process ensures we’re growing the best varieties around. We have hundreds of plants in our 2-acre Trial Garden so we can see how the plants hold up to the elements. We also have two acres of special greenhouses where our research and development team tests the hottest new plants to make sure we’re offering varieties that will thrive in your garden.


Cacti and Succulents

Cacti and succulents are some of the trendiest plants around. They’re so easy to care for, it’s no wonder why! Our cacti and succulent growing range is filled with fun textures and colors, such as these crown of thorns.


Orchids Galore

Orchids never fail to make us smile. Packed with giants that have more than a dozen blooms per plant to charming mini orchids, the Costa Farms orchid house is a bustling hub of happy workers. 


We’re Mad for Mandevilla

Miami is an ideal spot for growing mandevilla. Row after row of these colorful vines (more than 2.6 million, in fact) add bold color to our fields, just as the plants will brighten your landscape.


Colorful Crotons

You practically need sunglasses when you pass by the croton area! Like most of our houseplants, these stunners are grown under shade so they’re used to the lower light conditions they’ll encounter in your home. We have over 2 million at Costa Farms!


Beautiful Boston Ferns

Costa Farms also grows more than 2 million Boston ferns every year. The ferns thrive in Miami’s tropical climate so they’re in perfect shape when you pick them up at your favorite store. In addition to traditional Boston fern, we also grow lush Kimberly queen and big, bold macho ferns.


Pretty Peace Lilies

Peace lilies look beautiful on their own, but absolutely stunning in groups. And you’ll find groups of them at Costa Farms – more than 1.1 million in fact! These tough beauties are a favorite in our air-filtering O2 for You collection.


Bold and Beautiful Hibiscus

We love hibiscus and they love growing here! At Costa Farms, we produce some 25 varieties, including compact types (3- by 3-foot HibisQs) and our exclusive Tropic Escape selections. From low bushes to tree types, there’s always a hibiscus in bloom.


Providing Holiday Cheer

Costa Farms celebrates the holidays in a big way, too! We’re a leading grower of Norfolk Island pine, and at our facilities in Miami and North Carolina, we produce more than 1.6 million poinsettias for November and December.
