Located near Tallahassee, The University of Florida's Agricultural Research Center at Monticello, Florida sponsors research and testing for all Cold Hardy Crape Myrtles distributed throughout the U.S. and the World.

They have a nice selection of Our Patented True Miniature Crape Myrtles along with just about every Tall, Medium, and Dwarf Crape Myrtle variety ever released. 

The grounds are meticulously maintained in a park-like setting. The photos you see below were taken on a pleasant summer afternoon while strolling the grounds.
