Wicked Plants features living specimens of
some of the most notorious members of the plant kingdom. While there are far
more heroes than villains in the botanical world, some plants are REALLY
wicked. This display will showcase plants from our collection that poison,
paralyze, puncture, intoxicate, eat flesh, and otherwise offend, some of which
we commonly grow in our homes and gardens. Look at our diabolical specimens,
learn how some plants earn their bad reputations, and discover the dark side of
the plant world.
Included with paid garden admission ($10+
tax, $5+ tax for ages 3-12) or membership.
