About the show…

Come celebrate Cincinnati Parks Krohn Conservatory’s 25th annual Butterfly Show: Butterflies of Bali (presented by the John A. Schroth Family Charitable Trust)

Gaze in wonder as thousands of butterflies flutter through our tribute to the Indonesian island of Bali. Enjoy the sights and smells of the gorgeous blooms scattered throughout the showroom as our butterflies float from leaf to petal. In addition to the butterfly display we invite everyone to enjoy the full beauty of our cultural decorations on display that display elements of Bali’s traditional art & culture. There will even be elements celebrating the past 25 years of Butterfly Shows!

About the butterflies…

Bali is home to more than 350 different species of butterflies, or kupu kupu in Balinese! In our showroom, you will see Monarchs, Blue Morphos and many new species native to Bali, such as Tailed Jays, Common Rose Swallowtails and Leopard Lacewings.

About the plants…

Enjoy the sights and smells of the gorgeous blooms scattered throughout the showroom as our butterflies float from leaf to petal. The beautifully bright Bromeliads and the gorgeous Gomphrena that grace the room will transport you to a tropical paradise. The exotic colors and textures of the Pitcher plant and Phalaenopsis orchids will leave you with dreams of island vacations.

About the cultural elements…

Batik fabric, meaning ‘drawing with wax,’ is recurring in our cultural displays. This style of art originated in parts of India and Asia. You will notice many colorful tassels in the design, a common element of Bali art and religious artifacts. Black and white plaid fabric called saput poleng, meaning blanket in two tones, are used to symbolize the Bali philosophy of coexistence of opposites and the ultimate goal of harmony.

Krohn Conservatory was built in 1933 at the height of the Art Deco era.  Boasting five unique floral shows annually, including the ever-popular “Butterfly Show,” which can be viewed mid-March through mid-June.  During that time, thousands of butterflies are free to fly throughout the show room in a specially-themed garden.
