In 1976, Hugh Toepperwein opened Toepperwein's of Texas with the idea that he could produce hand-made beautiful plants with the craftsmanship of a virtual plant. Two years later, Toepperwein's was relocated from Houston to it's current location outside Columbus, Texas, where it resides today.

Hugh began developing a process in 1976 to preserve live leaves, so that they'll require zero care once the plant is in your room. There are very few companies world-wide that can preserve a live plant. Toepperwein's is constantly improving the process to guarantee you the most natural, virtual plant for your home or business.

Toepperwein's has grown and changed with politics, the economy and most importantly, the customer and their needs and desires. Because each product is hand-made, each can be modified to meet the needs of the client. We have custom made pieces in architectural marvels through out the world including the George W. Bush Presidential Museum. Let us help create your ideas into a virtual plant!
