Fall Flower Show

Delight in chrysanthemums in shades of purple, pink and yellow in early fall. Then, watch them transition to shades of maroon, copper and gold in late fall. Swiss chard and ornamental peppers serve as interesting accents throughout the fall flower show in the Sunken Garden at the Como Park Zoo and Conservatory, 1225 Estabrook Drive, Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Admission to the conservatory is free, but a voluntary donation of $2 for an adult and $1 for a child is appreciated.

See a video about it here.
