The reference to rosa x hybrid cutting means your roses were grown from cuttings of the hybrids they're named after. All are hybrid tea roses and all will rebloom all summer long if you keep the spent flowers cut off and you prune the flowering stem down to a 5-leaflet leaf. This is where new flowering stems will be produced. Aside from the above, you just need to plant your roses in a sunny location and keep them well watered. Enjoy your new roses!
