Search Frankfort Kentucky

Located on the capitol grounds, this mammoth living clock is suspended over, and surrounded by, an illuminated reflecting pool. The dial, which incorporates the name of the state, measures 34 feet across with 1 1/2 foot spaces between the minutes; the planter weighs 100 tons. Approximately 20,000 plants are required to fill the clock, all grown in seven on-site greenhouses near the Capitol. The clock's hands weigh in at about 1/4 ton each, and move once every 60 seconds. The Capitol grounds are open dawn to dusk daily, year-round.
