History & Vision

At Tagawa Gardens, our staff works together as a family to provide a quality experience for our guests and our community.  Our Tagawa Gardens staff has over 800 years combined experience helping our community GROW!

"Our Mission is to provide an enjoyable experience for our community, as well as the highest quality service, products and education, and respect for our environment."

Tagawa Gardens opened its doors to the community in 1982. However the greenhouses at 7711 S. Parker Rd already had a long history in the local area. Built in the early 1960's, the greenhouse had supplied the local area with tomatoes, fresh cut carnations and long-stem roses. The Tagawa family purchased these greenhouses in 1977 and quietly continued to grow beautiful roses for local florists.  In spring of 1982, a very small portion of the greenhouses opened sporadically as a shop with a few plants and cut flowers available. The 1982 Christmas Blizzard crushed many of the greenhouses, and the family decided to take the opportunity to change the course of the greenhouse's history. When the greenhouses were rebuilt, long-stem roses were replanted to be grown for the local florist trade, however about 5000 sq. ft of the greenhouses open officially as Tagawa Garden Center & Florist.

Natural dirt floors and wooden tables that had been rose growing beds displayed the top-quality plants that were grown on the premises. Four staff members ran the shop. It was a very relaxed and slow-paced time, very reflective of the growth and economy of the times.

Gone are the wholesale long-stem roses (although our logo always has had a rose to commemorate our long history with roses) to make way for our in-house production of potted rose bushes, annuals, container gardens, hanging baskets, poinsettias, and other crops to ensure the quality of these plants for our guests. Today, our store has more than 110,000 sqt ft indoors and over an acre of outside nursery. We employ approximately 40 year round employees and go up to approx.. 130 employees seasonally. We are fortunate to have many seasonal staff whom return to work with us year after year.  The warm, comfortable, family-like atmosphere is a result of the kindness and integrity provided by the Tagawa family to our staff.  Our visitors are always considered our Guests!

Recent years have brought more people to the local Centennial, Parker and Aurora areas, and the growth of the south metro Denver area has helped Tagawa's mature into what it has become today—a gathering place to provide plants, garden supplies, education, family fun and community support.  Guests can stroll over acres of indoor and outdoor oasis of lush plants, flowers, displays and chat with our garden enthusiasts and advisors. Besides a place to purchase plants and garden supplies, Tagawa Gardens provides for our community a year-round schedule of classes and family events for the public plus our exclusive Outreach program, which provide an extensive list of classes for larger community groups by appointment, either here or at their location. We donate from 5 to 10% of our profits back to our community in the form of plants and products to non-profit, charitable, non-religious groups.

YOU, our guests,  are always #1 with us! And we thank YOU for making us #1! In years 2007 through 2014, we have been voted "Best Garden Center" by The Denver A-List. In 2009, Sunset magazine named us "Best Place to Buy Plants in Denver." In 2006 & 2007, Tagawa Gardens was named Top Garden Center by the former The Rocky Mountain News. In 2015, Today's Garden Center, an industry publication, named us the Revolutionary Garden Center for the Western Region of the U.S.

We are grateful for our community's support and we are honored to be able be a part of our guest's lives in so many ways. Thank you!
