In 1999, Steve and Maria DeWald both with Ph.D.s in horticulture, left their jobs as research scientists and started DeWald Gardens. Maria's sense of style, flair, and color, coupled with Steve's ability to grow and cultivate plants, has led to a winning combination that has received national recognition. They now carry one of the largest selections of unique and unusual plants for the home and garden. The staff at DeWald Gardens prides themselves in providing expert advice on the proper selection and cultural needs of all the products.

Born in Italy and raised in Venezuela, Maria has an eye for style and putting together beautiful combinations. When she's not gardening, you can find her in the kitchen, throwing fabulous parties for friends and family, and visiting her children in Connecticut and San Francisco.
Born and raised in Fort Wanye, Steve traveled the world before coming back to Fort Wayne to start DeWald Gardens. When he's not planting things in the greenhouse, he can be found taking photographs, making wood carvings, and keeping the DeWald Gardens Facebook page up-to-date.
