Wicked Plants The Exhibit at Kalamazoo Valley Museum
Spring is in the air! That means garden enthusiasts are starting seeds, prepping bulbs, and planning this year's botanical projects. Will you hang a breathtaking fuchsia, create a colorful field of succulents... or get a little wicked?
Explore the world of Wicked Plants at the Kalamazoo Valley Museum, now through May 17th. Visitors can explore a creepy Victorian home and learn all about villainous plants through interactive displays. According to the museum's website, "History, medicine, botany, and legend are brought together to entertain and inform about the health effects to the human body, as well as the amazing evolution of some of Mother Nature's evildoers in the plant world." Based on author Amy Stewart's best-selling book, Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities, this exhibit is as fun as it is educational, and might just inspire you to create your own perfectly wicked garden.
