A 50-acre botanical oasis minutes from Downtown Orlando. Each garden is designed specifically to further our mission: inspire visitors to appreciate and understand plants.
Leu Gardens demonstrates plant materials suitable for cultivation in USDA Zone 9b. The climate of Central Florida permits Leu Gardens to grow and enjoy a wide array of temperate and tropical plants.
Discover palms, cycads and flowering trees. Enjoy azaleas, vines, bromeliads and tropical philodendrons. Appreciate the sight of familiar annual flowers and the beauty of roses and camellias. Stroll under the awe-inspiring branches of camphor trees, elms and oaks.
The garden and historical home were donated to the City of Orlando in 1961 by Mr. Harry P. Leu and his wife, Mary Jane.
The historic Leu House Museum is closed for repairs due to damage sustained by Hurricane Irma.
