Cincinnati Parks' Krohn Conservatory is preparing for their next seasonal floral show, and it's sure to be a violet delight. 

Kicking off Sept. 5, Plum Gorgeous will introduce visitors to an alternative autumnal hue, featuring a dazzling display of traditional fall plants and trees with rich shades of purple. Flowers and plants range from fuchsia mums and deep purple ipomoea to lavender, cabbage and kale, plus alyssum, scabiosa and a smattering of plum trees. 

"Looking to create a monochromatic color scheme in your yard? Learn helpful gardening advice from Krohn’s floral experts on how to make your garden shine using hues of a single color," a press release from Krohn reads. 

The floral show will run Saturday, Sept. 5 through Sunday, Oct. 25; hours are 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. The conservatory is closed on Mondays. 

General admission is $7 for adults; $5 for youth 5-17; and free for children under 4.
