Uli Lorimer


Uli Lorimer is curator of the Native Flora Garden. The Delaware native grew up with an interest in all things green, and after receiving an honors degree from the University of Delaware in landscape horticulture, he moved to New York City to become the woodland gardener at Wave Hill. Since becoming curator of BBG's Native Flora Garden, Uli has tended its historic collection and been instrumental in expanding the garden to include a coastal plain meadow and pine barrens habitat. In his ongoing efforts to collect seed from the wild and bring to the garden rare and unusual indigenous species, Uli works closely with other botanists in the New York region to document and study the biodiversity of our area.
