Gonna be anywhere near Chicago in mid-August, Road Trips Gardeners? You might want to swing by the Morton Arboretum, 4100 Illinois Route 53, Lisle, Illinois, for An Evening of Wicked Plants. Yep. We’re talking bloodcurdling botanical atrocities here.

In her New York Times bestseller Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln’s Mother and Other Botanical Atrocities, author Amy Stewart (pictured) takes on Mother Nature’s most appalling creations. It’s an A to Z of plants that kill, maim, intoxicate, and otherwise offend. Drawing on history, medicine, science, and legend, Stewart presents tales of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm, and enlighten even the most intrepid gardeners and nature lovers.

Discuss the dark and dangerous side of the plant world with this popular author and stay for a book signing. It all starts at 7 p.m. August 18, 2010, in the Sterling Morton Library at the Arboretum. Non-members get in for $21.
