Our History


Our business success has been built on the loyalty of our customers. We have enjoyed providing flowers, plants and nursery center products to the Boulder area for decades. Thanks for visiting our site, and we invite you to read the story of how Sturtz and Copeland got started.

Sturtz & Copeland | When it all began…

It all began in 1882 when James and Rhoda Hubbard purchased land at 1500 Arapahoe, a humble dirt road on the highway to Denver, to erect five greenhouses. In August 1928 Lloyd Sturtz and his wife Gladys purchased the existing greenhouse of what was by then Fawcett Floral. Sturtz and Copeland was founded in 1929 when Gladys’s father, Albert W. Copeland, joined the business.

In 1981, the location moved to 2851 Valmont under the ownership of Carol Riggs.  Carol took over Sturtz and Copeland in 1976 and oversaw the growth and development of the business for over 46 years. 

The next chapter of Sturtz and Copeland continues on with the current owner, Sarah Schmitz.  Following in tradition, Sarah bought the business from Carol Riggs after working at Sturtz and Copeland.   With the development of the greenhouses at 2851 Valmont, Sturtz and Copeland has found a new home at 3550 Arapahoe Ave.  The new location will continue to offer the same high quality products our customers have come to love and expect, while bringing in fresh inventory of cut flowers, house plants, pottery, gifts, greeting cards, jewelry, candles, body care and home decor.  All of our products are hand selected to bring joy to you and your loved ones.

The delightful and experienced staff are here to help you with any plant or floral request.  We have green plant experts who can help find the perfect plant for you or for a gift.  We can diagnose plant issues, select the correct pots for your plants and assist with potting your plants in the soil your plants need to thrive

Our floral designers are here to create beautiful arrangements for everything from everyday occasions to full service weddings.  Call in or stop by to have a floral designer bring your ideas to life!

Kristy Svec, Jennifer Williamson and Genny Klermund are all managers at Sturtz and Copeland and are here to assist you with any questions or issues.
