About Linda Beutler

Linda Beutler grows a great number of plants on a simple city lot in the Sellwood neighborhood of Portland, Oregon. She was a professional florist for over 20 years, and her first love in her own garden was growing flowers and foliage for cutting. Her focus changed when she purchased her first clematis as a misnamed plant. Her personal collection of this genus now numbers 300 separate species and cultivars. Her passion for clematis led to the publication of her first book, Gardening with Clematis. She is one of two vice presidents of the International Clematis Society. She was a founding member of the Friends of the Rogerson Clematis Collection in 2003, and served on their board of directors until July 2007 when she was named the collection's first curator. Linda has been an instructor of horticulture at Clackamas Community College for 12 years. She teaches on herbaceous perennials and The Flower Arranger's Garden. In 2007 Timber Press published her second book, Garden to Vase, on growing and using your own cut flowers, which was written with gardeners, not florists, in mind. She lectures nationally on numerous gardening topics, and is a garden writer for both local and national publications, including Fine Gardening, Pacific Horticulture, and Birdwatcher's Digest.
