"Carex for the Mid-Atlantic Region"

Speaker:  Sam Hoadley

 

Carex are a diverse and versatile, yet underutilized genus of native plants that are overflowing with garden merit. They can fill various niches in landscapes as groundcovers and living mulch, while some can even be used on their own as specimen plants. Traditionally thought of as shade perennials, some Carex species and cultivars exhibit remarkable tolerance to full sun as well, making them a viable and worthy addition to almost any garden. Take a deep dive into the results of Mt. Cuba’s Carex evaluation and learn about the top performing plants and how to incorporate them effectively into landscapes in the mid-Atlantic region.

Sam Hoadley is the Manager of Horticultural Research at Mt. Cuba, where he evaluates native plants to determine their horticultural and ecological values. Sam received his degree in Sustainable Landscape Horticulture from the University of Vermont.
