Fall into a Krohn Crevice Garden and enjoy the abundant fragrance of lavender and rosemary. Mosey through mounds of mums, asters, and succulents and bask in an array of colors.

This year’s fall show will feature a style of rock garden originating in the Czech Republic called a crevice garden. In a crevice garden, flat rocks are placed vertically in the ground, parallel to each other, thus creating a unique look much different from a traditional rock garden. Crevice gardens are considered a type of xeriscape and are particularly popular with alpine plant collectors.

Miniature crevice gardens will also be on display in the showroom and are in hypertufa planters. (some planted with hardy succulents, some planted with indoor succulents) Hypertufa is a lightweight concrete made with Portland cement, vermiculite, and peat moss. The planters will be in a raffle which you can enter upon visiting the show, and a winner will be announced at the end of the show for each planter. Each ticket purchased for admission will come with a free raffle ticket. More raffle tickets can be purchased in the gift shop.
