The Harry P. Leu Gardens is located in Orlando, Florida, a scenic walkway of style and idyllic scenery. It is a favourite place where visitors can pace themselves as they tour its beauty.
The gardens cover about 50 acres, including the country's biggest collection of camellias. Across three acres there are new idea type projects, special areas devoted to themes and interesting gardening concepts. One claims to be the state's biggest garden of roses that surrounds a historic home that was built in the 19th century. The second is a herb and butterfly garden with the third providing a tropical backdrop for the cycad, bamboo and palm garden.
The gardens aims to inspire visitors in the appreciation and understanding of plants, the state's environment and gardens of important significance historically. It opens daily from 10am to 4pm, with the final tours starting at half past three in the afternoon. However, for maintenance purposes, the gardens are closed to the public throughout July.
The Harry P. Leu Gardens offer varied classes in addition to the tours. Topics include crafts, fine arts, horticulture and landscaping. In fact, the tours of the gardens' house are also popular with many visitors, being held every thirty minutes from 10am until 3:30pm.
