Sean Hogan

Sean B. Hogan has been fascinated by plants from an early age. His formal education began at American River College and Sacramento State in the areas of horticulture and botany. Early work included mapping rare and endangered plants, mostly Cactaceae and Portulacaceae. From the mid-80s to the mid-90s, Hogan served as the curator of the South African, New Zealand, Australian, New World Desert and the California Native Cultivar Gardens of the University of California, Berkeley, Botanic Garden. In 1995, he and his partner, Parker Sanderson, returned to Hogan's native Portland to start a design and consultation firm specializing in regionally appropriate plants for the Pacific Northwest. This work eventually evolved into their opening of Cistus Nursery, located on Sauvie Island in the Columbia River outside Portland, widely held to be among best of the west coast retail-micronurseries. His writing and photos can be found in an extremely wide range of horticultural and botanical literature and magazines. He edited the 20,000 plus entry Flora, published by Timber Press in October 2003 and published Trees for All Seasons with Timber Press in 2008.
