As their name suggests, this type was created by crossing vigorous growing roses, Hybrid Perpetuals, with longer-flowering tea roses. From this, the hybrid tea rose was created which delivers with straight stems and large flowers. They tend to be repeat-flowerers, with mostly fragranced flowers.
These types generally have an open growing habit rather than dense, bushy growth. What’s more, the structure of the flowers and stems makes them most popular for cut flowers.
It was in the late 1800s that hybrid teas became a new class of rose. However, it wasn’t until the 20th Century that the popularity of modern hybrid tea roses started to increase.
To grow the best hybrid tea roses, plant in full sun or light shade in moist but well-drained soil that’s slightly acidic.
