mizzou botanic garden

A botanical garden at the University of Missouri is sponsoring a spring fashion show for style mavens and backyard gardeners.

The Mizzou Botanic Garden encompasses plant displays near historic points across the Columbia campus. The garden will host a Thursday night fashion show entitled "Taking the Mystery out of Plants."

Local mystery writer Elaine Viets will help host the 8 p.m. event in Memorial Union's Stotler Lounge. The show combines plant displays with detective-themed apparel designed by textile and apparel management students.
