Hybrid tea roses are bred for easy care-with a good planting location and regular pruning, they can flourish for decades. Site your hybrid tea roses in a location that receives at least six hours of sunlight per day, with good drainage. The path to success starts with good planting. To plant your hybrid tea roses:
After planting, keep your roses well-watered during the growing season, providing at least one deep watering every week. Water your hybrid tea roses at the base, without soaking the petals or leaves. Monthly feedings with rose food or fertilizer can be beneficial. After blooming, deadhead your plants to keep them tidy.
Like most garden plants, Hybrid Tea roses need from one to two inches of water each week, which, depending upon your climate, may require weekly or biweekly supplemental watering. Locations with warmer climates and sandy soils will require a more frequent watering routine. A good rule of thumb to follow with watering Hybrid Tea roses is to water when you notice that the top three inches of soil are becoming dry.
Make sure to water the soil only and not the leaves to prevent your Hybrid rose plants from developing mildew or scale. Water the soil around the base deeply to encourage root growth-if only the top couple of inches receive water, your hybrid tea rose will develop shallow roots. Keep in mind that roses grown in planters or pots will need more frequent watering than roses grown in-ground.
Hybrid tea roses are easy to care for, pruning will definitely be the highest-maintenance part of the process. Luckily, pruning hybrid tea roses is simple. Be sure to have the right tools on hand and clean-loppers for thick branches, and a pair of hand pruners for smaller cuts.
Start by removing any dead, diseased, or damaged stems early in the spring. Make sure to remove any thin canes, or suckers, that are less than a half-inch thick. To shape your rose bush, trim the remaining canes by no more than a third of their length. Make your cuts at a 45-degree angle, to avoid water pooling on open cuts. Roses can handle pruning well. Hybrid tea roses bloom on new wood, meaning that you can prune freely and still receive plenty of flowers in the same season.
Hybrid tea roses are incredibly fragrant, and climate, growing culture, and location can increase their beautiful perfume. Keep your roses well hydrated for maximum fragrance. Nearly all tea roses have the classic, sweet fragrance associated with rose bouquets, but a few really stand out as the best of the fragrant roses.
Simply put, hybrid tea roses are tea roses, hybridized over generations to diversify their genetics. Heirloom roses, or old garden tea roses, come from purebred cultivars started before the mid-1800s. The "new" roses that we consider modern tea roses were first developed in 1860s France. In general, hybrid tea roses were created by breeding old fashioned tea roses and a species known as Hybrid Perpetuals. Thus, hybrid tea roses offer longer bloom times and repeat blooms, while old-fashioned roses typically offer only one bloom period per season. Hybrid tea roses have continually evolved, thanks to new and innovative breeding, and are now quite easy to grow.
While roses have a reputation for being finicky, modern hybrid tea roses aren't difficult to grow, with the proper care and attention. Hybrid tea roses are incredibly robust, with long bloom times, large flowers, and extremely easy care. Planting is simple, and, with good soil, plenty of sunlight, and adequate water, your hybrid teas will quickly take root and flourish. After they're established, hybrid tea roses do need regular watering and appropriate pruning.
