Company Description
Celebrating 50 years of business, Tagawa Greenhouse Ent is the largest annual bedding plant supplier in North America with 60 acres of greenhouse production and over 600 employees within our three locations.

Tagawa Greenhouses started in 1967 with Frank Tagawa and his 5 sons producing vegetable transplants for their truck farming operation. During the 1970's through the 1990's rose and carnations were added and grew the business significantly. As cut flower production moved off shore, production of plugs and liners for sale to other greenhouses increased to fill the former cut flower space in the greenhouses. Finished production of annual bedding, Easter lilies and poinsettias also increased. Today, our 5 petal logo represents the 5 founding brothers with a "Plus" representing our new products, services, and programs. We share the same values and goals as our founders.

We produce annual and perennial seedlings and liners for greenhouses throughout North America. In addition, Tagawa Greenhouses provides finished annual and perennial products for mass-market retailers under the InColor brand.
