Tropical Plants at Leu Gardens, Orlando
When most people think of Orlando, Florida they think of theme parks and amusements. But there are pockets of Orlando that are completely disconnected from the manufactured worlds of Disney and Universal—like the Harry P. Leu Gardens. This urban oasis is teeming with tropical plants like azaleas, palms, and camellias and features a historical home once lived in by the Leu family. Today, over 2,000 camellia plants and 230-plus cultivars are displayed throughout the garden whose collection ranks among the largest in the United States.
