Susanne Lucas


Susanne Lucas is a freelance horticultural consultant, garden designer, and landscape gardener. She has encountered many plants, but it is her passion for bamboos that has endured. Over ten years ago she set out to grow only the most cold hardy bamboos in her garden in coastal Massachusetts and continues searching the globe for those still not in cultivation. She is president of the American Bamboo Society.
