The Real and Imaginary World of Carnivorous Plants

Step inside the world of carnivorous plants...literally!

Get swallowed up by the alluring tropical pitcher plant or be entranced by the undulating sundew, just two of the four giant sculptures that lend larger-than-life perspective to a beautiful, vibrant, and deadly species.

Carnivorous plants, in their spectrum of colors and forms, endlessly fascinate us and turn the dinner table on Linnaeus’ “Order of Nature.”

Savage Gardens opens at The Arboretum in the summer of 2015 and celebrates real and imaginary carnivorous plants through sculptures, children’s interactive displays, related programs, and living plants.
