Variety SpotlightRaspberry Cupcake

This brand new variety of hybrid tea is an upright, bushy plant with large, cup-like flowers whose intoxicating fragrance smells like raspberry lemonade.

Tagawa Gardens is proud to be one of only two garden centers currently carrying this variety!

Shrub Roses

Shrub roses, particularly Canadian or old garden (species) shrub roses, are known for their hardiness, disease-resistance, and resilience in poor soils. Shrub roses require less maintenance and stand up to tough Colorado winters.  Most of these varieties do not have the petal count or flashiness of hybrid teas, but they provide multi-season interest with their rose hips, exciting foliage cover, and some of the best old rose fragrances.


Floribundas are a wonderful choice for anyone new to growing garden roses. Offering a spectacular variety of colors, these roses bloom profusely in bold clusters. They require deep watering and wind protection, but floribundas are more adaptable to variation in pruning and moisture conditions.

Hybrid Teas

Hybrid teas are crown jewels of the garden. These iconic roses require more moisture, wind protection, and rigorous pruning than other roses, but hybrid teas reward with stunningly large blooms, rich in color and fragrance. Reaching heights of 3-5 feet, these roses make excellent cut flowers.
