About Suzanne Franklin
I was born with a love of flowers as early as I can remember. I was constantly dreaming of walking through rows of beautiful flowers. After ten years of crossing lilies, I learned my God given name "Suzanne" means "Lilly; Brilliant; Pure". When my husband (Bobby) and I decided to move to the north Georgia mountains in 1996, I was looking for rich soil for my flowers. We found it! 15 acres with 3 streams that flow into a lake at the back of our property.
I started becoming more serious about hybridizing and now after 21 years, my vision was to turn Jungle Paradise into a peaceful, fun place, for all ages to visit. We have many beautiful shade trees and play areas for children. We have the large pavilion with tiki hut for parties, public restrooms. We also have a golf cart that we call the "Paradise Buggy" to take tours of the gardens.
I am a Master Gardner and have almost any kind of flower you can imagine, here in Jungle Paradise; tropical, wildflowers, perennials over one hundred different azaleas, rhododendrons and camellias. We even have Palm and Banana trees here in North Georgia. Our season runs from March to October; Beautiful flowers start around Easter on.... Services we offer are
