Breeder Profile: Kevin Hurd

Kevin Hurd

Kevin Hurd, formerly of Walters Gardens, brings a fresh perspective to breeding. A graduate of Iowa State University, he got interested in hybridizing perennials while interning at Nico Rijnbeek's nursery in the Netherlands. Using his contacts from around the world, he dedicates his time to bringing the best new perennials to the market, whether this be through other breeders or his own breeding.

Walters Gardens, Inc. has had the privilege of introducing several of Kevin's hybrids, including Leucanthemum s. 'Banana Cream' PP23181, which has become one of our very best sellers.  Several of Kevin's introductions are part of the prestigious Proven Winners® Perennial Collection.
