  • water dropWater

    The Hybrid Tea Rose should be watered deeply once a week, providing about 1 to 2 gallons of water per plant, ensuring the root zone is thoroughly soaked. During hot, dry spells, increase watering to every 4-5 days. Avoid overhead watering to keep the foliage dry and prevent the spread of diseases. It’s best to water early in the morning to allow any moisture on the leaves to evaporate throughout the day. Adjust the watering schedule during rainy periods to prevent overwatering.

  • sunLight

    Hybrid Tea Roses require full sun to perform their best, which means they should get at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sunlight each day. A spot that provides morning sun is ideal as it helps dry dew quickly from the leaves, reducing the risk of fungal diseases. These roses should not be placed in areas where they will be shaded for the majority of the day.

  • thermometerTemperature

    Hybrid Tea Roses thrive in a temperature range between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit. They can survive minimum winter temperatures down to 20 degrees Fahrenheit, but they require protection from extreme cold. The maximum temperature these roses can tolerate without stress is about 90 degrees Fahrenheit. For optimal growth, maintain consistent temperatures within the ideal range.

  • scissorsPruning

    Prune Hybrid Tea Roses to maintain their shape, remove dead or diseased wood, and encourage vigorous growth. The best time for major pruning is in late winter or early spring, just as new buds begin to swell. Remove any thin, weak stems and cut back the remaining canes by about one-third to one-half. Make your cuts at a 45-degree angle about 1/4 inch above an outward-facing bud. Light pruning and removal of spent flowers can be done throughout the growing season to keep the plant tidy and promote continuous blooming.

    Hybrid Tea Roses require well-drained soil enriched with organic matter such as compost or aged manure. A suitable soil mix should have a slightly acidic to neutral pH between 6.0 and 7.0. To improve drainage and aeration, adding perlite or coarse sand is beneficial.

  • plantRepotting

    Hybrid Tea Roses planted in containers should be repotted every 2 to 3 years to replenish the soil and accommodate the growing root system. Early spring, before the growing season begins, is the best time for repotting.

  • circleLife cycle

    The Rosa 'Harzippee', commonly referred to as a Hybrid Tea rose, typically starts its life cycle as a dormant, bare-root plant or as a rooted cutting. Once planted, it breaks dormancy in spring, pushing out new growth which develops into stems and leaves. By late spring to early summer, the rose enters its flowering stage, producing large, fragrant blooms that are often cut for arrangements. After flowering, if the spent flowers are not pruned back, the plant may produce hips (seed pods) in the late summer or fall. The hybrid tea rose will enter a period of dormancy in the winter months, especially in colder climates, where it may require protection. Throughout its life, which can span many years with proper care, the rose will go through annual cycles of growth, flowering, and dormancy.

      Spring-Early Summer

    • The Rosa 'Perception' ('Harzippee') (PBR) (HT), commonly known as the Perception Rose, is typically propagated by semi-hardwood cuttings. This method is most popular due to its simplicity and effectiveness. To begin, cuttings of about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) in length are taken from the current year's growth during the late summer. The leaves on the lower half of the cutting are removed, and the cut end is often dipped in a rooting hormone to encourage root development. The cutting is then planted in a well-drained soil mix, ensuring that at least two to three nodes are buried where the leaves were removed. These cuttings require a moist environment and some form of humidity dome or plastic covering to maintain constant humidity until roots have formed, which can take several weeks.
