About This Event
Known for its usefulness in flavoring Italian cookies and sausage, anise seed was also used by the ancient Greeks and Romans who believed the seeds could increase desire. They may have been on to something—anise seeds have been found to influence human hormone levels. And, as so many artists have demonstrated, flowers are among the strongest and most evocative symbols of love.
Learn about other love potions from the garden during our pre-Valentine’s Day walking tour with botanical information consultant Frank McDonough. Free with regular admission; members free
