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.
