Krohn Conservatory

The Krohn Conservatory, located in Cincinnati, Ohio in the Eden Park area, is one of my favorite garden spots in Cincinnati.  It was completed in 1933 and named after Irwin M. Krohn, who served on the Board of Park Commissioners.

There are over 3500 species of native and exotic flora here.  As you walk through the conservatory, you will notice that there are many different sections.  There's a tropical house with  ferns, begonias, and two nice sized pools.  One of my favorite sections is the Palm House which contains an indoor rainforest with a 20 waterfall and towering trees.

The Floral Display House is mostly used for seasonal displays, such as the wonderful butterfly display, Japanese Garden, and Winter Wonderland.
The Desert Garden houses cacti and succulents, and the Orchid Room contains several thousand orchids.
The Conservatory is open daily from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Admission is free, except for the special exhibits.

  2. I'm going to try again and spell correctly. Such a gem in Cincy - I'll have to see it next time I visit a friend up there. I don't know how we've missed it. Neat post
