I don't know, I haven't been to all of them.

But out of the 1 I've been to I'd say Omaha's.

Yeah, me too Go Ne. Out of the one and only I've been to, I'd have to say Chicago wins by a longshot.

I'm going to have to say Middleton Place. It is so beautiful and historic at the same time. There is just this certain elegance in Middleton Place.

It's too bad the poll doesn't include my favorite, the Memphis Botanic Garden. The soil is so rich and the growing season is so long in Memphis that even fenceposts sprout roots. It's one of the few positive things about the city.

Otherwise, I really haven't been to a botanical garden that I haven't liked.

Loritzen Gardens were good when I went, but to be honest, I've never been to any other ones, so I'm not one to judge, and I don't really like flowers much,(come with too many insects) so I didn't even enjoy the LG very much either. So i suppose I shouldn't have voted in this... oh well!
