About This Event


Freaky Flora Guided Tour

Why was rosemary traditionally placed in funeral bouquets? How did the pomegranate get the name the “fruit of the dead?” What flower was once used to preserve dead bodies? Which herb in the Middle Ages was believed to ward off evil spirits?

Learn the answers to these questions and more as you discover the eerier side of our “Freaky Flora” plant collections in this one-hour walking tour led by Arboretum staff!
