Native plants don’t have to be boring! On Saturday, June 29, from 10 a.m. to noon, Adam Wheeler, horticulture manager of Broken Arrow Nursery, will explore the unique and exceptional aspects of our native flora. Adam will present his current favorite native trees and shrubs for general garden use, including design considerations, cultural requirements and other critical details, with a special emphasis given to unusual variation and unexpected use.  Adam will bring an assortment of fun plants and offer a mini plant sale.

Adam Wheeler started working at Broken Arrow Nursery in 2004 after earning his bachelor’s degree in urban forestry and landscape horticulture at the University of Vermont. Adam manages plant propagation, container and field production and the acquisition and development of new plants. He is a past recipient of the Young Nursery Professional Award from the New England Nursery Association and is also an adjunct lecturer at Naugatuck Valley Community College.
