The fall floral show at Krohn Conservatory is inspired by the special relationship between native peoples and plants. Show designer Bethany Butler wanted to highlight the rich culture of indigenous people through environmental and historical references. The show features a replica of Fort Ancient’s Great Serpent Mound, a prehistoric indigenous effigy mound, a brilliant display of mums and a small trickling creek. Indigenous plants important to the Midwest Native Americans will be showcased as well, including Arrowwood Viburnum and “the three sisters” (corn, beans and squash). 


Through Oct. 26. $4 adults; $2 children. Krohn Conservatory, 1501 Eden Park Drive, Mount Adams, cincinnatiparks.com/krohn.
