Krohn Conservatory opening Fall Floral Show

Thru Sunday, Oct. 29, Krohn Conservatory, Eden Park

The Fall Floral Show at Krohn Conservatory has been dubbed “Grass Roots: Art of Nature.” It includes framed copies of works by artists of all levels, local to world-renowned. Their eclectic styles are united by the influence of nature.

Attendees will view an array of chrysanthemums as painted by Monet, the cypress trees of Van Gogh and the roses of Dali.

Applied Imagination (which created the botanical architecture and railroad structures for the Holiday Show) will install a new display for the Fall Show. Called “Who Lives Here,” it will be in the Fern House and will highlight the botanical creations of various animal homes.

Admission is $4 for adults, $2 for children 5-17 and free for those 4 or younger.

Scherzinger Termite and Pest Control is the presenting sponsor.
