Hybrid Tea Roses were created by cross-breeding two types of roses: hybrid perpetuals and tea roses. They have traits of both parents, generally hardier and more often repeat flowers. Hybrid teas are very popular, especially with cut flower growers as they have a single flower on a longer stem.
I purchased five Hybrid Tea Rose bushes in July on sale and got them in the ground very quickly. This first photo is what they looked right right away. They were still blooming and looked gorgeous.After they finished blooming, I dead-headed the blooms. I read that to dead-head roses you want to prune back to an outward facing leaf set of five leaves. This encourages outer growth and pruning to five leaves should create a stronger new branch.
This is what they looked like in mid-August all mulched in. This one had new growth and I hoped the others follow. You can see in the photo below that the red new growth is coming from a five-leaf set off to the left.Here is what they look like now in late September. Re-blooming!Do you like roses in your yard?
