ANN ARBOR

Continuing a long tradition of research, education and healing through botany, the University of Michigan's newly dedicated medicinal garden is now open at Matthaei Botanical Gardens.

..

The 6,000-square-foot garden runs the length of Matthaei's conservatory, and is made up of paved paths separating plant beds that are unconventionally organized, according to Bob Grese, director of Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum.

..

"Usually plants are grouped by families or by what part of the plant is harvested, but for educational purposes, we decided to group them by systems of the human body and the conditions they treat," he said. "For instance, foxglove is a common garden plant that can be found in the 'cardiovascular' section of the garden because it is used as an ingredient in the heart medicine Digitalis. Another example is stevia, a plant used to add sweetness to the diet without raising blood sugar, which can be found in the 'diabetic/metabolic' section."

..

Grese says that he wants visitors to understand that this unique layout will not aesthetically look like a traditional garden.

The garden, which will be a permanent living exhibition open to scholars, researchers and the general public, boasts more than 110 plant varieties that are listed on the medicinal garden's website. QR codes linking to more information about specific plants can be found on labels throughout.

"There are many gardens that address medicinal plants, but very few attempt to be evidence-based like this one." said Warber, who started the Integrative Medicine program at U-M and plans to use the garden as a teaching tool for her students. "So often, we talk about plants and the conditions they treat, but many haven't seen or considered them in their original state."

..

She said that today approximately 40 percent of pharmaceuticals in the U.S. used to treat human disease are derived from plants or were originally derived from plants.

..

According to David Michener, associate curator at Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum, the opening of the garden pays homage to a long tradition of interdisciplinary partnerships between pharmacy, medicine and botany programs at U-M.
