The public is invited to the Carnivorous Plant Show on Sept. 5 and 6 at Tower Hill Botanic Garden in Boylston.
Visitors will have a chance to see up close one of the largest collections of carnivorous plants in the United States, featuring some of the most beautiful, varied, and fascinating specimens on the East Coast.
The 12th Annual Fall Carnivorous Plant Show – open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday – is a unique event that multiple generations of family members can enjoy together as they explore plants that grow all over the world and some that thrive locally in New England.
The New England Carnivorous Plant Society will help visitors learn how these plants feed, what they eat, where they live, and how they can be grown and enjoyed at home.
Participants can visit the Venus Fly Trap feeding area, attend a seminar on care and cultivation, and purchase plants and accessories from a number of specialty vendors.
The show is included with admission to Tower Hill, which will be open for exploration throughout the show. For more information, please visit towerhillbg.org or call 508-869-6111.
