Are you ready for spring? I know that I am! The new spring floral show at the Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati is ready to inspire you to take a trip to the bayou in your future!
Step into the Krohn and celebrate spring on the bayou! Blooms on the Bayou is inspired by the colorful culture of New Orleans which features both a fun, festive side of the ‘Big Easy’ as well as the eerie, yet enchanting, swampy southern bayou.
Wander down our bayou boardwalk in the midst of bald cypress trees, blossoming bog lilies,and Spanish moss to explore the mysterious river shack and feel the rhythm of the Dixieland jazz in the traditional New Orleans courtyard surrounded by Crepe Myrtle and Magnolia trees glittered with beads!
Hundreds of vibrant annuals will animate this display with charming camellias, dazzling tulips, fragrant hyacinths, and illustrious ferns reminiscent of the French Quarter. So sit back, take it easy, and let this beautiful floral display take you away to the warm southern spring of the Louisiana bayou!
Blooms on the Bayou will run January 21- March 12
The spring show at Krohn Conservatory (located in Eden Park) will be open on Tuesdays through Sundays from 10 am – 5 pm, but will be closed on Mondays.
