Wicked Plants: The Exhibit @ North Carolina Arboretum  | Asheville | North Carolina | United States

On exhibit September 16, 2017 – January 7, 2018, inside the Baker Exhibit Center, The North Carolina Arboretum’s popular, one-of-a-kind traveling exhibit,Wicked Plants, returns to the Arboretum this fall! Inspired by author Amy Stewart’s best selling book “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities,” this fun-filled, family-friendly exhibit gives visitors a safe, hands-on experience with some of the world’s most harmful plants and diabolical botanicals.

Featuring more than 100 plants and thrilling two- and three-dimensional interactives, Wicked Plants is set inside a Victorian-era ramshackle home where visitors migrate from room to room and learn about various poisonous plants that may be lurking in one’s own home or backyard. By incorporating history, storytelling and science, Wicked Plants provides visitors with a treasure trove of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm and enlighten.
