African savannah grass maze


Harder than it looks, this maze is located in the Southern Africa section of the Gardens.  Made from a perennial grass that Africans use for thatching, mat-making and other functions, it challenges children to find a series of plants that are useful to humans.

NB: The maze was heavily pruned back at the end of May…but you can still learn about the plants within!
