Please add your feedback for the businesses you've patronized and the public gardens and parks you have visited. It helps other gardeners and the business or organization.
For smaller businesses and organizations, this type of "word of mouth" is their only form of advertising. And for businesses of any size, unsolicited testimonials are priceless - they can't buy that type of good will.
You can narrow this down to a particular category (garden center/nursery, or public gardens, etc.) You can also plug in your ZIP and specify a radius (especially helpful if you live near the state line and want to see everything in your immediate area.)
If your favorite nursery or park/garden isn't listed yet, let us know and we'll add it, or start the entry and add what you know (we'll fill in the blanks.)
I look forward to visiting this nursery as often as I can; they carry a lot of common plants, along with some unusual ones. Their stock is A+ and their prices are very reasonable. Customer Service is excellent, as they are always willing to help, and if they don't know the answer to a question, they find someone who does.

This is a nice thread. I like Harry P Leu Gardens. Here is the website. http://www.leugardens.org/ They offer alot. I used to work across the road from the back of it. If you are going to be in Orlando, it is worth the time to go and look around.
My girls and grandkids go off and on.

Great site!! In addition to my love of tropical plants, I also love to watch speed boat/hydroplane races and bull riding, so if you hear of these events in Florida or a nearby state, please give a shout out! Thanks.
Corky! I almost fell out of my chair when I saw your post! We lost touch years ago! I miss you! I am doing good and have jumped head first into gardening. Today, I received 100 black ti plant stems that I need to root. I hope to post pics soon.

It may be one of the semi-newer butterfly bush varieties.(buddleia) I think there's one called Honeycomb and another called Golden Glow. The yellows came along later than others, and usually break in those layered chuncks instead of a full length blossom.
