The name 'hybrid tea' came about because they originated from the old
Tea roses. These Tea roses had a scent of freshly picked tea and produced
flowers of beautiful form. However, they were not fully hardy and prone to diseases.
After many years of breeding however, Hybrid Teas are now fully hardy and
much better at resisting disease.
Hybrid teas are by far the most popular form of rose and there are a huge
number of varieties in all colours, perfumes and shapes. They have large
flowers and they form small to medium size bushes. They are well suited to
being trained as standards.
'Julia's Rose' is truly beautiful.
