Hybrid Tea Roses are probably the most popular type of roses. They are a cross-breed of traditional tea roses with other types of roses. They are valued for their long stems with single huge blooms, making them perfect for cutting. Hybrids have an overwhelming number of colors and strong fragrances. But because of all the cross-breeding, they are often less resistant to disease than other varieties. So make sure you take home a bottle of fungicide and begin your bi-weekly spray program from the start.
