MIDLAND, Texas (Nexstar)- Midland Centennial Library invites the community to “explore the darker side of nature and learn about diabolical and dangerous plants”.

Inspired by author Amy Stewart’s best-selling book, “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities,” the exhibit features more than 100 plants and highlights their potential negative health effects. Wicked Plants combines botany, medicine, history, and storytelling in an engaging hands-on environment.

Visitors will travel from room to room inside a Victorian-era house, learning about some of the world’s most dangerous plants. This educational exhibit features two- and three-dimensional inter-actives in each room.

The library will clean and sanitize the exhibit and take precautions by providing hand sanitizing stations throughout the exhibit. Social distancing and face coverings will be enforced.

Wicked Plants: The Exhibit opens January 19 at Centennial Library.
