The Colorado Flower Growers Association (CFGA) was founded in 1928 to support the production and marketing of greenhouse flowers grown commercially in the state. The CFGA accomplished this goal through vigorous promotion of greenhouse products, cooperative group action, and financial support of plant research conducted at Colorado State University. Initially, the members of the CFGA cultivated carnations as their major flower crop. During the first half of the twentieth century, Denver became known as the "Carnation Capital" of the world. The emphasis of producers shifted in the latter part of the century to other cut flowers and potted plants. In 1979, the organization changed its name to the Colorado Greenhouse Growers Association to reflect the increasing diversification of the industry. The Colorado Greenhouse Growers Association merged with the Colorado Nursery Association in 2005 to form the Colorado Nursery & Greenhouse Association. Timeline: Colorado State Flower Growers Association, November 1949-September 1951; Colorado Flower Growers Association, October 1951-December 1979; Colorado Greenhouse Growers Association, January 1980-2005; Colorado Nursery & Greenhouse Association, 2005-.
