Welcome to our houseplant store! How did we get here?  Well, a pandemic happened! Pollen is primarily a wedding florist and with weddings being postponed, my studio and my time, quite unexpectedly, became available indefinitely. With a beautiful storefront and a love of plants and design, I decided to offer plants for the home to a world yearning for comfort and nature.

We offer a selection of unique houseplants, for plant newbs and plant ninjas. If you like watching them grow, we have lots of options in 4" nursery pots, and if you like them already grown, we have larger plants as well. We're focused on foliage plants and love ones with special coloration or variegation. We'll leave the basic stuff to the big box stores.

We carry pots, plant stands, hanging planters, watering cans, propagation stations, misters, books, and will add more items to our inventory as we get a sense for what you all need for your plant babies.

As of July 2020, we now offer in-store shopping, online shopping with curbside pick-up or delivery, and private shopping appointments. {{Update as of 11/17/2020: walk-in shopping is on hold.}}  We're located in Avondale at 2918 North Milwaukee Avenue in Chicago.
