About Zimlich’s Patio & Garden

ZIMLICH’S Patio & Garden Center is located at 2650 Dauphin St.,Mobile, AL where we are celebrating 39 years at this location. The Garden Center carries on the tradition of offering only the highest quality of plants, shrubs, bulbs as well as a magnificent variety of distinctive garden ware and unique containers and baskets.

The Zimlich family immigrated from Southern Germany to Louisville, Kentucky and in 1900 under the guidance of Andrew Zimlich, established a truck farm which was located where the Mobile Gas Company is now. Cabbage farming gave way to gladiolus and other field flower crops and in 1927, Julius Michael Zimlich took on a partner and opened West End Florist on Sage Avenue.

With passion for the “world of flowers” and a lot of hard work, business thrived and additional shops and greenhouses were added during the next few decades. In 1979, Hurricane Frederick and the passing of Leon Zimlich, expansion was delayed. Within two years, ZIMLICH’S Patio & Garden Center was opened by the Andrew J. (Joe) Zimlich family.

The offer only the highest quality in plants and flowers, a most unique collection of containers and vases and a dedicated staff of designers and consultants to assist you with all your floral needs.
