Wicked Plants on NPR


Say, did you hear Amy's segment on NPR's Morning Edition this am? If not, here it is. I love the closing music: one of my faves.

Elizabeth Licata has been a regular writer for  Garden Rant since 2007, after contributing a guest rant about the overuse of American flags in front gardens. She lives and gardens in Buffalo, N.Y., which, far from the frozen wasteland many assume it to be, is a lush paradise of gardens, historic architecture, galleries, museums, theaters, and fun. As editor of Buffalo Spree magazine,  Licata helps keep Western New Yorkers apprised about what is happening in their region. She is also a freelance writer and art curator, who’s been published in Fine Gardening, Horticulture, ArtNews, Art in America, the Village Voice, and many other publications. She does regular radio segments for the local NPR affiliate, WBFO.

Licata is involved with Garden Walk Buffalo, the largest free garden tour in the US and possibly the world, and has written the text for a book about Garden Walk. She has also written and edited several art-related books. Contact Elizabeth: ealicata at yahoo.com


  1. I heard it in the car. Alone at the time, I excalimed aloud, “I know her!” and I believe I pointed at the radio. I know I don’t really know Amy, but I’ve read her books and I visit with y’all all the time–it breeds a certain very pleasant familiarity. NPR and a Garden Ranter in the same place at the same time? It made my day!
