The "Plum Gorgeous" Fall Floral Show Transforms Krohn Conservatory into a Violet Delight

Cincinnati Parks' Krohn Conservatory's fall floral show is a violet delight. Plum Gorgeous opened Sept. 5 and introduces visitors to an alternative autumnal hue, featuring a dazzling display of traditional fall plants and trees decked out in 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 runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday through Oct. 25. The conservatory is closed on Mondays. General admission is $7 for adults; $5 for youth 5-17; and free for children under 4. Krohn Conservatory, 950 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams.
