My family and I enjoy visiting Krohn Conservatory throughout the year, their seasonal displays are always amazing and we always learn something when we visit. From their annual butterfly show to the Holiday poinsettia display and beyond, they always find a way to create amazing exhibits full of color and life.

Their Fall 2014 exhibit is no exception — ‘Ancient Gardeners: Indigenous Earthworks‘ is on display until October 26 and is perfect for an autumn outing with your family.  Here’s a little about the show:

Waving prairie grasses and fall splendors of the harvest including pumpkins, gourds and sunflowers will Krohn Ancientfill the 2014 Fall Floral Show, Ancient Gardeners: Indigenous Earthworks at the Krohn Conservatory.  Curving smoothly through the middle of the showroom floor will be a replica of the Great Serpent Mound consisting of hundreds of spider plants framed by a small trickling creek and surrounded by burnt orange, red, and yellow mums with pops of brilliant blue asters.  Indigenous plants important to the Midwest Native Americans will be showcased in this show including the Arrowwood Viburnum, Amaranth, Nicotiana, and “the three sisters” (corn, beans and squash)

The Great Serpent Mound is located in Adams County, Ohio atop a plateau overlooking the Brush Creek Valley and is the largest mound effigy in the world,  measuring over 1,300 feet long.  The mound was built by the Fort Ancient culture of Native Americans and is over 4,500 years old, which is 1,000 years older than the ancient pyramids of Egypt!  Come experience the beautiful fall flowers and learn about the amazing ancient gardeners and their incredible indigenous earthworks!

The show designer is Krohn Florist, Bethany Butler. Ms. Butler is intrigued by the history of indigenous cultures and she has always wanted to design a show that highlights some of that rich history.
