Adult Night Hike: Floriography: The Language of Flowers

Program Details

 May 11th or 12th

7:30-9pm

During the Victorian era, floriography, or the subtle art of communication through flowers, was as hot as an uncovered ankle.  Famously repressed young Victorians, in a world before Twitter, relied on innuendos and insults sent in the form of bouquets to convey messages too unseemly for polite conversation.  In this program, we will explore the historical gardens and buildings of the Arboretum while discovering the secret meanings of the foliage around us and the sometimes bonkers origin stories of how those associations were formed.

*This program is for adults 18 years and up.

*Advance online registration is required for Adult Night Hikes. We do not allow any drop-ins or walk-ups. Please arrive 10 minutes before class to ensure you are not left behind! Refunds will not be granted to registered guests who miss the class due to tardiness.
