Annuals are the color and inspiration behind every great garden, hanging basket and planter.  Easy to grow and so many varieties available at Costa Produce Farm & Greenhouse! We grow eight greenhouses full of annuals from Alyssum to Zinnias as well as a huge selection of herbs and vegetable plants.
Enjoy the beauty only flowers can bring all summer long.

We care about our pollinators! And house 1.5 million of them on our farm.

Thank you for being honey bee conscientious!Cara Mahtomedi, MN

Proper sunlight, food and pinching (or pruning) are necessary for optimum plant health, please refer to our plant care page for more info.
