This is a thread created to introduce you to a rather small, compact, extraordinary garden in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I wasn't clear on where to post this but thought "Photos" couldn't be wrong.

I have a couple of friends who live there. I visited last week. Weather was warm and tropical. Home gardens were absolutely gorgeous and lush. Green everywhere. Crape Myrtle in all sizes and colors EVERYWHERE.
http://www.tulsagardencenter.com/htdocs/LGC/index.htm

Linnaeus Garden is a Teaching Garden. Free though donations are more than welcome. I was hosted by a volunteer (my friend Cathey's mother) who is a wonderful gardener. Linnaeus is a testing ground for Proven Winners and other growers/suppliers. The volunteers care for the various/plentiful variety of plants and the entire property. One cool thing is that eventually they MAY get the opportunity to take the plants to their own home gardens.

While I was there, July 8-12 the weather was scattered clouds, rain, thunder, tropical and humid but manageable.
I have lots of pics here to share.

Linnaeus, a Swede, is considered the "Father of Botany".

Near the entrance to the Garden. Lots of Petunias being tested now. These looked to me like "Wave" but are really more of a "spreader". One stem with a raised flow/wave of flowering.

Lots and lots of Crape Myrtle in tree form, shrub, small shrub... lots of colors. Crape Myrtle does GREAT in Tulsa. Groves of the plant everywhere.

I think this is a Mandevilla. Really pretty color at the gated entrance to the garden.
BTW, the garden is surrounded by perfect grass acreage, tall and beautiful trees.

This is a new Crape Myrtle shrub. When I say new it's new to Tulsa. Could be tested elsewhere, successfully.

Now, I'll post some of the gardens, ponds. Mind you, this is what I would call a small space for a really gorgeous garden. Greenhouse, offices, sheds and ponds and gardens.
