King’s Florist was established in the Rosedale neighborhood of Austin, TX in 1927. John and Bertha King purchased several lots on Medical Parkway and, with a loan from her parents, they built a family home, detached salesroom and two greenhouses where they would grow flowers, plants, shrubs and even vegetables for their new business.
1964 saw big changes for the company: The building received a major renovation and they dropped the “s” on the name. The newly named King Florist was now owned by R.G. and Jo Ann Wierusheske. They shifted focus away from bedding plants to floral designs. The windows of the new shop were of utmost importance to the couple. Every holiday would see a new window painting and display. At Christmas the front windows were filled with red poinsettias earning them the title Poinsettia King.
In 2011, we made our move to 1806 W Koenig Lane, King Florist’s final home. The city and floral industry have changed a lot since 1927. What began as a family home and greenhouse has grown into Austin’s premier luxury florist. With nearly a hundred years in business, King Florist continually delivers best-in-class service and products to Austin, Georgetown, Buda, Dripping Springs and surrounding areas.
