The Harry P. Leu Gardens sit on a beautiful 50 acres just outside of downtown Orlando. There are many collections of plants, such as the Arid Garden, Aroid Collection, Azalea Collection, Bamboo Collection, and Banana Collection, amongst many others.
There is even a Butterfly Garden, filled with a variety of annuals and perennials interspersed between shrubs and trees, all designed to attract butterflies and moths while adding an elegant beauty to the landscape.
As you may know, citrus trees are a huge part of Floridian botanical life, and in keeping with this, the Harry Leu Gardens have a Citrus Grove with over 50 types of citrus trees.
Visitors are dazzled by the delightful scents and bright colors as they stroll through the grove. If after visiting, you want to bring some botanical life into your own home, the Leu Gardens offer classes on gardening and landscaping, nature, botanical arts and crafts, history, and photography.
They even offer fitness, cooking, and well being classes, as well as summer camp for children Monday through Friday with Leu Garden staff and volunteers for instructors.
The Harry P. Leu Gardens also offer rentals for business meetings, cultural events, seminars, banquets, receptions, and more.
The Leu Gardens also allow space rentals for lovely garden weddings for both standard sized weddings and smaller, more intimate weddings in the White Garden, the courtyard, under the trellis, and in the South Woods Gazebo.
The Harry P. Leu Gardens are open from 9 am to 5 pm every day, and are only closed on December 25. Admission ends, however, at 4 pm.
