Wicked Plants Display

October 8 through 31, 2022 

9 a.m. to 5 p.m.  


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 ($15+ tax, $9+ tax for ages 3-12) or membership.
