KU Botanical Science Greenhouses
Wednesday, Feb. 1, 2023
12:10 - 12:50 p.m.

Did you know that KU is home to a curated collection of rare plants from all over the world? Please consider joining us on a tour of the KU Botanical Science Greenhouses located on a rooftop in Haworth Hall. We'll learn about the history of the greenhouses, their functional systems, and ongoing research conducted there. This will also be an opportunity to get up close to rare and endemic plants, including some that are threatened or extinct in the wild. See the towering single leaf of the corpse plant, unique carnivorous plants, and the world's smallest water lily. We'll give a brief overview of the evolution of plant life here on Earth, and which plants in our greenhouses fit where on that evolutionary tree. You're sure to leave refreshed and eager for spring!
