What is a hybrid tea rose?
Hybrid tea roses, classified as modern garden roses, are created by cross-breeding (or hybridising) tea roses with hybrid perpetual roses. Hence the name, hybrid tea rose. Originally invented by the French around 1867, hybrid teas are seen as the oldest type of modern garden roses. They are ideally suited as cut flowers. Thanks to their thick and long stems, their big buds and bright colourful blossoms, hybrid teas have grown to be one of the most popular cut rose types worldwide and are now iconic for their form, quality and vaselife.
