Located in Orlando, Florida, the Harry P. Leu Gardens contain fifty acres of ancient oak trees, camellias, and giant camphors. In fact, it has the largest camellia collection and formal rose garden in the southern United States. The gardens were donated to the city of Orlando in 1961 by Harry P. Leu and his wife, Mary Jane. There is also an herb garden, butterfly garden, palm garden, and bamboo garden on the grounds.
The gardens are open daily from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, except on December 25th, when the gardens are closed.
Cost of admission, which includes a tour of the Leu House Museum, is $10.00 for adults, and $3.00 for children.
