We pride ourselves on offering over 180 different roses, including Hybrid Tea, Climbing, and English Roses suited for the Denver climate. Despite their reputation, roses are surprisingly easy to grow. Visit us each spring and find the perfect rose bush to compliment your yard!
Hybrid tea flowers are well-formed with large, high-centered buds, supported by long, straight, and upright stems. Each flower can grow to 8–12.5 cm wide. Hybrid teas are a very popular type of rose by choice due to their color and flower form. They were created by crossbreeding two types of roses, initially by hybridizing hybrid perpetuals with tea roses. It is the oldest group classified as a modern garden rose.

Typical floribundas feature stiff shrubs, more petite and bushier than the average hybrid tea but less dense and sprawling than the average polyantha. The flowers are often smaller than hybrid teas but are carried in large sprays, giving a better floral effect in the garden. Today they are still used in large bedding schemes in public parks and similar spaces.

These tall and hardy roses develop on long-stemmed clusters for exquisite sophistication in flower border landscaping or hedging. Hardy and disease resistant.

Miniature roses have been bred to stay under three feet tall while still putting out clusters of colorful blooms. This makes them ideal additions to rock gardens, tight border spots, the edges of rose gardens, and patio container gardens. The short bushes grow dense and bushy, vaunting packed trusses full of petite blooms!

Climbing Roses are an excellent way of bringing height and a feeling of abundance to the garden. They are best and most frequently used on house walls and perfect for growing on pillars, obelisks, fences, trellises, and overarches. Climbing Roses usually have large flowers, held singly or in small groups. Nearly all varieties have the ability to repeat bloom. They are fragrant and healthy and have the natural ability to flower from the top to the ground.
