Of course they grow in Colorado. Everything grows in Colorado. Just pay
attention to which zone you're in and plan accordingly.
Pumpkins are slow growing cold weather crop. They'll be ready for

two or three seeds or starts in each hill, and don't thin them unless
they look ready to give up the ghost or show diseases.
