·1 min read

May 24—If these flowers look familiar, it might be because you've seen them in the garden center in your local Walmart. Greenway Plants, based in the White Plains community near Anniston, supplies major box stores like Home Depot and Lowe's with their flowers and plants. They do not sell to the public.

Owner Jon Hegeman took over management there in 2004, and bought the facility in 2008. Greenway Plants has 11 acres of indoor greenhouse space, and 10 acres outdoors. They produce about 5 million container plants annually.
