Leu Gardens Publishes New Book!

To celebrate 50 years of community education and inspired gardening, the Gardens’ Board of Trustees has released Florida Oasis: A Photographic Tour of Harry P. Leu Gardens (Cool Springs Press, November, 2010).

The title is a fully illustrated tour through the history and botanical collections of the Harry P. Leu Gardens, beginning with a rich account of the private gardens of Harry P. Leu and ultimately its transition into a public place of year-round beauty and education.

Those who cherish the shade of the grand old live oaks, the exotic tropicals that pop and amaze and the mature natives of Central Florida, will treasure the behind-the-scenes history and surprises found in Florida Oasis.  

Florida Oasis is now available in the Gardens’ Gift Shop! Leu Gardens is located just 15 minutes from Thurston House, our Central Florida bed & breakfast.
