Jesse Durko opened his now famous tropical nursery and gardens in 1990, with the goal to improve the world through horticulture. His worldwide tropical and sub-tropical plant collection includes fragrant flowers, colorful shrubs, aroids, heliconias, gingers, bromeliads, palms, bamboos, orchids, and flowering trees. Naturally, a large collection of Florida native plants is blended with the showy exotic plants, all selected and tested for their hardiness, ease of maintenance and beauty in the landscape, to work together in a spectacular South Florida garden.
The 10 acre property displays much of the collection in a breathtaking landscape design bordering the nursery. Most plants grown in the garden are available for sale in the nursery. For lovers of gardens and tropical landscaping, looking for inspiration, Jesse Durko's is a destination!
