Knud Nielsen Company
Knud Nielsen Sr., founder of the namesake company, based his firm in Evergreen, Alabama, specifically because the area was known for its prolific foliage growth. South Alabama's dense forests provided an abundant supply of magnolia, smilax, holly, palms, mistletoe, huckleberry, oak, ferns, and Spanish moss. Nearly a century later, Knud Nielsen is the world’s largest company devoted exclusively to dried flowers and other materials. As this creation makes clear, it’s one of the most artistically distinctive as well.
