Dangerous and Sometimes Deadly Plants
“I say those plants have power.” These are the defiant words of Circe, our heroine in the eponymous novel by Madeline Miller. Circe used plants to cast spells of transmutation and illusion.
SIUE’s Dr. Kurt Schulz will introduce us to some of these plants with power. Out there among the benign flowers, trees, and crop plants there are some bad actors. Come meet them so they don’t spoil your next potion.
