Wicked Plants: The Exhibit

Inspired by Amy Stewart’s best-selling book, “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities”, Wicked Plants: The Exhibit is a fun-filled, family-friendly look at some of the world’s most dangerous plants, many of which are commonly found in homes and gardens.

Exciting interactives fill a Victorian-era ramschackled home, where visitors move from room-to-room uncovering secrets and learning about the history, science, and legend of various medicinal and poisonous plant life.

Funded by The North Carolina Arboretum Society and the Creel-Harison Foundation.
