Hybrid Tea Roses
The standard rose of the floral industry
The most popular variety of rose, hybrid teas are the result of a hybridization of a Tea rose and a Hybrid Perpetual. Characterized by their large, high-centered buds, classically formed blooms, and stiffly upright habit, hybrid teas have long been favored for small gardens in formal situations. And their exquisitely shaped flowers continue to be the standard rose of the floral industry, due to the fact that they're generally borne singly on long, strong stems. Hybrid teas are the perfect "florist shop rose", but they're equally rewarding adorning your garden!
