Step into a macabre and amazing world of survival...
where plants hold all the power
The North Carolina Arboretum brings you a new traveling exhibit inspired by Amy Stewart’s best selling book Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln's Mother and other Botanical Atrocities. This fun and family-friendly exhibit gives visitors a hands-on experience with some of the world’s most diabolical botanicals ~ without the risk of pain, poisoning, dismemberment or death. Thought provoking, entertaining and educational interactive displays set inside a ramshackle home create a fascinating portrait of the evildoers that may be lurking in your own backyard. History, medicine, science, legend and lore are brought together to present a compendium of blood- curdling botany that will entertain, alarm and enlighten.
