A lifelong gardener, Mal Condon has been collecting, propagating, and growing hydrangeas for 40 years. He is an engineer educationally and brings a strong technical and investigative nature to the continuing development of the genus – always searching for new and better plants, evaluating their landscape performance, and finding superior ways to produce them.
He and his wife Mary Kay owned and operated Hydrangea Farm Nursery on Nantucket Island for many years. In February 2014, they relocated to Yarmouth Port on Cape Cod where Mal remains active as Curator of Hydrangeas at Heritage Museums & Gardens in Sandwich. He is also the current President of The Cape Cod Hydrangea Society. Long a noted speaker in his former business career, Mal regularly shares the many virtues of his favorite genus with garden clubs, horticultural associations, and plant societies in the US and other hydrangea-centric locations worldwide.
