Celebrate the return of The North Carolina Arboretum’s exhibit, Wicked Plants, with a special talk by author Amy Stewart in honor of her best-selling book “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities.” Reserve your ticket today! A tree that sheds poison daggers; a glistening red seed that stops the heart; a shrub that causes paralysis. In her book, Stewart takes on over two hundred of Mother Nature’s most appalling creations that kill, maim, intoxicate and otherwise offend. Drawing on history, medicine, science and legend, Wicked Plants is a compendium of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm, and enlighten even the most intrepid gardeners and nature lovers.
