New for October: Freaky Flora!
Discover the eerier side of our collections as you enjoy a self-guided exploration of our “Freaky Flora” plant list. While weaving your way through the garden, look for little scarecrows tucked along the paths.

Each scarecrow indicates a stop on the Freaky Flora list and has a QR code connected to our full Freaky Flora route, along with fun, spooky facts about all 25 plants. This educational experience is done at your own leisure- Stops are found throughout the garden, and do not need to be followed in any specific order. Fun for both adults and children.
