Knud Nielsen Company
Knud Nielsen Sr., founder of the famous company, specifically based his company in Evergreen, Alabama, 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. Almost one hundred years 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.
