Sam Hoadley is the Horticultural Research Manager at Mt. Cuba Center. His work includes evaluating native plant species, old and new cultivars, as well as hybrids in Mt Cuba’s Trial Garden. Using data collected and analyzed over a three-year period a research report is published outlining top preforming plants for the Mid-Atlantic region. This information is designed to inform consumers and home gardeners as well as professionals in the horticultural and nursery industries about the ecological benefits and attributes of the native plants in our trials. Current genera on trial include Carex, Solidago, Hydrangea arborescens, and Vernonia. Sam received a degree in Sustainable Landscape Horticulture from the University of Vermont.
