Description of a Hybrid Tea Rose
If you ask: What is a hybrid tea rose; the quick answer will be: It is a group of garden roses, which were created by cross-breeding two different types of roses—tea roses and hybrid perpetual.
They are hardier than normal tea roses, which are usually very tender, but are not as hardy as hybrid perpetual.
They are more inclined to flower repeatedly than hybrid perpetual but are not quite as ever-blooming as tea roses.
Hybrid tea roses are usually propagated through a technique known as budding, which involves grafting buds from the parent plant onto another plant, called the rootstock.
These roses exhibit traits of both parent roses, but in modified forms.
Within the horticultural community, hybrid tea roses are known to have large, high-centered buds and long, straight, upright stems. Individual flowers can grow to be between 8 and 12.5 centimeters wide.
