Hybrid Teas Roses 


The hybrid teas roses are a tall and elegant variety, and they produce the famed long-stem roses. They repeatedly produce individual flowers in a season. 

Hybrid tea roses are very famous in all parts of the world. They are prized because of their long stems, great shape and a unique fragrance. Almost all hybrid teas are budded onto the rootstocks which assist in their faster growth, more so in their initial years. In California, almost all of the hybrid teas are budded onto the rootstock of Dr. Huey, while Fortuniana is preferred in Florida. In the North, growers of rose opt for Rosa multi-flora as the rootstock. Some of the commercial growers are experimenting growing these on their very roots, but the results of it have been far from satisfactory, as the hybrid teas grown there are of a poor quality, and the growth is also pretty slow. 

Most of the newer hybrid teas are not as fragrant as the roses of the yesteryears were, but some of them are very fragrant indeed. Some variants like the Perfume Delight, Double Delight, Secret, etc., can be compared to the scent obtained from the old garden roses as well. The others just have a slight fragrance to them. Every year, there are many new varieties of hybrid teas that are introduced, but it's difficult, and almost impossible, to improve on perfection!
