The beauty of Hybrid Tea Roses lies in their exquisitely formed, pointed ‘bud flowers’. Each stem usually holds a single flower with sparse foliage at the base. Hybrid Teas have a broad colour palette, which includes many bright, vibrant shades. Contrary to what is often believed, some varieties are very fragrant, although others have no fragrance at all. They do not blend well with other plants in the mixed border, but with their short, upright habit of growth they are excellent for rose beds, formal rose gardens and even narrow borders – particularly borders along a fence or in front of the house.
