Botanical Center Announces Plants of the World Exhibit Opening

The Quad City Botanical Center is excited to announce the exhibit opening of Plants of the World: People Behind the Plants on Friday, May 26, 2023.

This new, unique exhibit honors the personal stories told by Quad Citizens from around the world who now call the Quad Cities their home. The Sun Garden is home to several different species of plants that can be found all over the world, some of which bring back fond and wonderful memories for the featured storytellers.

Travel through the Sun Garden and learn about their personal connections to plants in our collection such as the banana, papaya, cacao, coffee, and more. Plants of the World, through the stories of featured Quad Citizens, will give a new perspective on the role plants play in our daily lives and how plants serve differently around the world.
