RPG IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED IN SUPPORT OF EFFORTS TO SLOW THE SPREAD OF COVID-19
In many books and novels, flowers play a role in healing people and relationships. Pansies are often listed among those flowers. Pansies, called flowers with 'faces,' can have a soothing effect on viewers. Associated with spring by many, pansies actually prefer fall temperatures. In Ohio, plants may flower until early December (depending on the weather) and begin to flower again in early March. Flowers flourish in gardens or in containers and display a rainbow of colors from yellow, gold, orange, violet, red, and white to very dark purple.
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.
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.
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.
