Did you know.... that roses love Colorado?  And with so much to love about roses, why wouldn't every gardener here want at least a few to grow and nurture? 

Tagawa's Rose Department officially opens the season with our Night of Wine and Roses, traditionally held the third Friday in April. Come celebrate "the queen of the flowers" and toast the gardening season just ahead. Here's a look via video at our Night of Wine & Roses event 2015, sponsored by Balistreri Vineyards! Nearlly 4000 of our own-grown roses were ready for purchase for the first time in the 2016 at this special event!

Here is a video look at how we grow YOUR roses here at Tagawa Gardens!

Tagawa Gardens has been known for more than 25 years for its stunning selection of premium roses.  Every spring, we begin the growing season with about 200 different varieties. Even before that, since 1978 the Tagawa Family had grown long-stem roses for the wholesale florist trade. So we've been growing roses for a long, long time!  

Here is our 2018 Rose Bush List!  This list is not a live inventory and to be used as reference only, please contact the Rose Dept at 303-690-4722 ext 137 for current availability.

Choose from hybrid teas, floribundas, shrub roses, climbers, miniature roses, groundcover and English roses…. about 4000 individual plants in all.

What are the hot topics in Tagawa's Rose Department?

1) Hybrid teas are the belle of the ball in Tagawa's rose collection. They cast a spell all their own.  Hybrid teas demand more moisture, wind protection and rigorous pruning than other types of roses, but in return they reward us with amazingly large blooms with great color and fragrance on top of long stems.  They're perfect for arrangements and bouquets.  Are hybrid teas the divas of the rose garden? You bet, but they're well worth it!

2) Floribunda roses are all about strength in numbers, freely producing bold clusters of flowers in abundance all season long.  Like the hybrid teas, floribundas come in a wide variety of colors, require deep watering and protection from severe wind.  But unlike their larger-flowered kin, floribundas boom profusely and are more forgiving about their pruning and moisture conditions.  Floribundas are a great choice for anyone new to growing roses.   With a little T.L.C., these roses won't disappoint.

3)  Shrub roses are the cold hardiest plants in Tagawa's Rose Department.  They're easy to care for and are very Colorado friendly. These lower-maintenance roses offer a softer color pallet, with lots of gentle, but eye-catching pastels.  If wind is a problem where you garden, be sure to check out Tagawa's collection of Canadian roses.  As their name implies, they're stand-outs at tolerating more challenging weather.

What questions do we hear most often?

Question #1:  When do I prune my roses?
Answer:  We recommend gardeners wait until mid-May to prune their roses.  Late-season snow and frost can surprise us.  Sudden cold can damage tender new growth that appears shortly after pruning.  Gardeners who live at elevations higher than Denver should hold off pruning their roses until their own average frost-free date arrives.

Question #2:  How should I prune my Hybrid Tea roses?
Answer:  First, limit your Hybrid Tea plants to four or five canes at the base.  This will promote a sturdier plant and bigger blooms. Find the point where each of those canes emerges from the base of the plant.  Follow that cane up until you come to the second set of leaves that points outward or toward you, away from the center of the plant.  Prune just above those leaves.  Make sure your pruners are sharp, so you get a nice clean cut.

Question #3:  How often do I water my roses?
Answer:  Let the top one inch of soil dry out, then soak the soil to a depth of four inches.   Test by inserting your finger or a moisture meter near the root ball.  Remember that growing conditions can vary, even within the same garden.  Roses grown in sandy soil will dry out faster than plants grown in heavier clay soil.  The amount of sun the plants receive, the slope, wind conditions… all of these factors need to be considered.
