A Garden of Evil is a distinctly unpleasant place to be, where [[EverythingTryingToKillYou all forms of life within are poisonous, corrupted, and extremely deadly]]. Often populated by sinister research (scientific or magical) experiments run amok, the garden can also serve as a protective barrier for a villain's lair. This is the plant life of {{Mordor}}.

There is probably a hedgemaze -- quite possibly {{mobile|Maze}}.

May be under a {{Curse}}.

Scale can vary greatly. A common type of DeathWorld [[SingleBiomePlanet consists entirely of this]]. In instances where the garden grows, expect TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt. See TheLostWoods, TheHedgeOfThorns, ManEatingPlant, WhenTreesAttack, PlantMooks, AlienKudzu, MeatMoss, and LostInTheMaize. No relation to [[Franchise/{{Nasuverse}} the Garden of Sinners]].

* In ''Manga/NausicaaOfTheValleyOfTheWind'' almost the entire world appears to be covered in an ever-growing forest that releases a deadly miasma that kills in a single breath, victims often [[HighPressureBlood ejecting fountains of blood]] [[BloodFromTheMouth from their mouths]]. To add to this, the forest is protected by often aggressively territorial insects the size of houses. [[spoiler:Nausicaa secretly grows forest plants on pure water to find that it's not the plants themselves that are poisonous, it's the polluted soil they are growing in. The end of the manga reveals that the plants were genetically modified JustBeforeTheEnd to purify the polluted world.]]\\
\\
In the manga there is also an utopic garden, [[spoiler:where the forest has finished purifying the land]], that turns out to be a Garden of Evil [[spoiler: because humans can no longer survive in such clean air, their lungs having become adapted to the polluted atmosphere.]]

* In ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'', the goal of the first campaign is to reach a mythical place known as the Black Garden, which is the home of a time-and-reality-spanning mechanical consciousness known as the Vex. The Black Garden itself is a location that is moved outside of normal time-space (the Vex apparently do this a lot with their stuff) and consists of endless stretches of the Vex's hyper-complex machinery that has been overgrown with vines, grasses, and red flowers. And at the heart of it [[spoiler: is some sort of EldritchAbomination that the Vex could not comprehend and decided to worship as a god.]]

* Probably quite a few gardens in {{Nightside}}. Best known - runaway garden/[[HungryJungle jungle]] in front of Griphon estate. Also some of the places on the other sides of timeslips.

* The Assassins' Guild in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' is expanded on in the fics of Creator/AAPessimal. The story '''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/5423228/1/Murder-Most-Orrible Murder Most 'Orrible]]''' introduces Doctor Davinia Bellamy, who becomes Botany Teacher at the Guild School. Her preffered means of servicing the needs of the client involves the language of flowers, which inevitably say ''Drop Dead!'' in a variety of elegant ways. Her attitude to gardening involves planting interesting hedgerow and verge plants to mark the boundaries of her property and using pot-plants such as the Apache Hospitality Cactus and a bonsai version of the Pyramid Strangler Vine [[note]]Bonsai is a matter of scale. She has scaled a plant that can grow three hundsred feet tall and occupy an area of several hundred square yards down to a more manageable eight feet or so[[/note]] as security systems in her florists' shop. Her garden is marked with interesting and decorative border plants such as the Hergenian Ironthorn with its long stilleto thorns, the Astoria Trailing Creeper that deals with things like snails, slugs and rats, Catbite[[note]]A plant that thinks catnip is for wimps[[/note]], Lancre Thistles, and nettles that deliver a more painful rash. The Guild of Thieves warns its members about Bellamy-designed gardens. "Do not go there" sums up the warning.

** The whole of Gorgrond is an enormous jungle filled with mutated plants and a race of PlantPeople mad geneticists, complete with a marsh of cursed mushrooms with MoreThanMindControl powers. The worst part is the Everbloom, an outdoor "dungeon" where the party races to stop a Genesaur from escaping through a portal into Stormwind.

** About a dozen different areas qualify, but the Plaguelands are probably the best example; two whole zones infested with TheUndead and covered in [[OminousFog orange mist]], where most wildlife is either dying or diseased and the plants appear to be mutating into [[FungusHumongous giant fungi]].

** Northern Val'sharah in the Broken Isles is a (literally) Nightmarish twisted jungle of horrible creatures spilling out from the Legion invading the Emerald Dream. The Darkheart Thicket and the Emerald Nightmare are the corresponding dungeon and raid.

** The previous game, ''VideoGame/CastlevaniaAriaOfSorrow'', featured the Floating Gardens. While the plantlife was actually rather pleasant, the garden itself didn't stay fixed in one location, as you randomly teleported from inside the castle to about a mile away floating in the sky whenever you went to the next screen.
** ''VideoGame/{{Castlevania 64}}'' had a hedge maze. While not filled with corrupted plant life, the Frankenstein's Monster Gardner and two hounds that were initially just statues by the main entrance would chase you throughout the entire stage. It also had a rose garden, where the flowers are red from the blood that's used to water them.
