The new Fall show at the Krohn Conservatory is going to be FUN! Ancient Gardeners – Indigenous Earthworks will have a replica of the Great Serpent Mound in Adams County, Ohio. How cool is that? I loved going to the Serpant Mound on field trips when I was a kid. And now it’s coming right to The Krohn!
September 6th – Ocotober 26, 2014 (Closed Mondays)
10 a.m. – 5p.m.
A bit about the show…..
” Waving prairie grasses and fall splendors of the harvest including pumpkins, gourds and sunflowers will fill 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!”
