One small sign along the highway is all that promotes this once-private garden gone big time. Joyce and Ed Doty's love for plants and art now spans 240 acres and includes many different gardens, a hardwood plantation, a canyon, lagoons, a Japanese teahouse, a poinciana maze, a waterfall, and a sandy beach. Throughout are more than 160 bronze sculptures, reputedly one of the nation's largest collections. One popular feature is a children's garden with a 16-foot-tall Jack
and the Beanstalk bronze sculpture, gecko maze, tree house, kid-size train and, of course, a tropical jungle. Located in a residential neighborhood and hoping to maintain good neighborly relations, the garden, which is now a nonprofit organization, limits tours (guided only). Tour lengths vary widely, from 1½ to 5 hours. Reservations are required.
