Hybrid Tea ROSES

Hybrid Tea Roses are distinguished by their ‘bud flowers’, usually held on a single stem with a little foliage at the base. They have a diverse colour palette, which includes many vivid shades. Although many Hybrid Teas are unscented, some varieties are surprisingly fragrant. Originally bred to be grown in rose beds; they have a short, upright habit. This also makes them ideal for growing in a narrow border, along a fence or in front of a house. Their habit of growth renders them less suitable for mixed borders, as they tend not to blend well with other plants.
