The Place To Go for Things That Grow.

Welcome

One million. That’s the number of plants that Lee and Anne Niepagen have at Wendell Niepagen Greenhouses at peak season. The greenhouse, whose roots date to 1910, has been officially operating since 1963. It was established to grow produce to sell to all the “mom and pop” grocery stores in town. Today, Niepagen’s has a full line of annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, pottery and more.

This is hands-down the best floral shop in Bloomington-Normal and they are so sweet and friendly! They give you that “small town feel” right when you walk in the door! Very knowledgeable! Gearing up for another season!!”
