Are the dried outer petals of this HT (Fragrant Memory) due to insufficient watering? I'm afraid I let my garden dry out a bit when I hurt my back. I haven't noticed this result in any of my other roses so I suppose it is something hybrid teas do.(?)

This is the first year I've tried hybrid teas--most of my other roses are shrubs or miniatures.

It does look a bit parched; have you seen any wilting of the leaves?

Beautiful bloom nonetheless!

No. I never noticed the leaves looking particularly wilted, but it bloomed during a hot, dry period of the summer when there was no rain. The leaf on this one is fairly heavy and so it would have to be really parched to droop, I think.

It smells lovely. It's too bad it has only had two blooms and no more forthcoming.

Welll.....that's what all my HT's look like. i blame the hot dry wind.
Mine don't get enough water, either, but only the hybrid tea blooms end up like that. Crying

Was gonna say what Cindi said.. About 99.9% of all my roses, shrubs, HT, minis, floribundas, grandifloras, etc, all look like that this time of year. I just chalk it up to dry & wind & HOT.

Thanks - I no longer feel like I've flunked hybrid teas.

Sometimes, the hot wind improves them! Lovey dubby

It reminds me of some of the species roses that grow in California,
