Hybrid Tea Roses
Developed in the late 1800s, hybrid tea roses are a cross between hybrid perpetual roses and tea roses. They became wildly popular almost immediately and continue to be held in esteem by gardeners everywhere. Hybrid tea roses are known for their large, well-formed blooms—usually carried singly on medium to long stems—which are perfect for cutting for indoor arrangements. They are also the most popular for exhibition. Hybrid tea roses are versatile in the landscape, as there is a variety to enhance any area. Shrubs are usually upright, lushly clothed in dense, green foliage. They can range in height from about 3–6' for a low border or a tall hedge. Many gardeners plant their favorite varieties just for cutting, but the plants make lovely accents in the perennial garden. Fragrance is often a delightful bonus!
