Theme for this year’s display in the Sunken Garden of Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, 1225 Estabrook Drive, Saint Paul, Minnesota, is a native son, the musician and artist known as Prince.

In the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory Road Trips Gardeners will find a botanical color scheme of purple and lavender, featuring a new Oriental Trumpet hybrid Lily named “Purple Prince”.

Some other prominent purples include Purpletop Vervain, Russian Sage, Beebalm, Butterfly Bush, and Heliotrope. Purple, white and lavender Roses, Caladiums, and Petunias will continue the color theme.

If you miss this, the Fall Flower Show opens October 8 and runs through November 27, 2016.
