Harry P. Leu was an Orlando native who built a successful business and promoted Central Florida. Over 25 years, he and his wife traveled the world collecting exotic plants. He purchased the property in 1936 but its origins go back to 1888. The property was donated to the city of Orlando in 1961 with very strict conditions of its usage. He created a nearly 50 acre garden on the shores of Lake Rowena. It's well worth a stop for anyone visiting Orlando. Admission is very inexpensive at only $5. Here is a view of one of the walkways: Many different exotic plants can be found there such as this: Common flowers can also be found there like this Peace Lily: And flowers with very interesting colors such as this Jungle Geranium: I've posted some samples from these gardens in the Macro galleries and will be posting more in the days to come. The Rose Garden alone is half the size of a football field. I'll definitely be going back more to visit.
