RPG IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED IN SUPPORT OF EFFORTS TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19
At Rockefeller Park Greenhouse, autumn is bedecking trees and shrubbery in exquisite colors. Not to be outdone, fall flowers are flaunting their jeweled colors as well. Among flowers, the chrysanthemum (mum for short) is known as the Queen of Fall Flowers. As if by magic, mums suddenly appear everywhere at the beginning of the season and linger throughout. But did you know that these plants were originally used for culinary, rather than ornamental, purposes?
A Cleveland gem, the Rockefeller Park Greenhouse is a City-owned botanical garden and greenhouse that is open to the public seven days a week, including weekends and holidays. Admission is free.
Situated on four peaceful and lush acres, the Greenhouse features a variety of specialty plant collections, seasonal floral displays, and spectacular theme gardens-- including the Betty Ott Talking Garden for the Blind.
Explore luxuriant and peaceful gardens featuring ADA-accessible walkways, tropical fruit trees, a garden for the blind, and spectacular seasonal displays. RPG's Specialty Gardens provide memorable experiences.
During this unprecedented time, RPG staff, Friends of Greenhouse, and volunteers are bringing the delights of the Garden to our visitors online. As plants bloom, we will share photos of indoor and outdoor collections. We look forward to welcoming you back to RPG after COVID-19 has subsided. (Pictured, orchid)
The Willott Iris Garden, a beloved legacy of iris experts Tony and Dorothy Willott, is located on the welcoming grounds of the Rockefeller Park Greenhouse.
