Hi, I recently both 2 sets of hybrid tea roses but they are growing very differently so I was wondering if someone could tell me if they are in fact both hybrid tea. Thank you.

Welcome, Maryse! I am not the one who will be able to identify your hybrid teas, but I will advise you to move them outside. No roses grow well or even survive very long indoors.

Thanks porkpal, I have just bought a house and I'm moving in a week so I have been collecting quite a few plants that will all be moved outside very soon.

Welcome! Maryse

I agree, they will all be much happier in Georgia's bright sunlight.

When they bloom we might be in a better position to identify them.

Welcome! Maryse ...

Do you know the names of your roses ? If so, you can easily look them up in the NGA database. If you don't find the rose in the database, just ask here and someone might be able to help you ... Smiling

As for the roses in your photos, it is too early in their growth to determine what class your plants belong to. Hybrid teas are defined by their bloom form, plant architecture and lineage. BUT not all roses classified as hybrid teas have the urn shaped bloom form associated with the class.

For example, the rose named 'Ellen Willmott' is classified as a hybrid tea, but has a single bloom form (4 to 8 petals) and opens flat.

Rose (Rosa 'Ellen Willmott')

There are thousands of roses classified as hybrid teas. The growth habit varies a LOT.

If you don't have the names for your roses, the only way we might be able to help you identify them is when you post photos of their blooms and of the plants.

I'd rather weed than dust ... the weeds stay gone longer.

Thanks steve812 and rosebush1; I am very excited to bring them outside and as they were just sold as hybrid tea and I am just learning about roses I didn't ask more questions. I will post more pictures when they are in bloom and hopefully we will be able to identify them.

tantefrancine: I plant most of my roses in the same manner, and in similar soil conditions. Are your rose holes surrounded with a plastic collar, like commonly available edging? You might want to think about some type of containment. I just buy the sturdiest lawn edging available, cut in desired lengths, and staple the ends together, making a "hoop" which I place down over each rose. One can then hill up each rose with soil, way above the graft. BUT FIRST, you can add cardboard, plastic, whatever you want to snub out the weeds you mentioned. Roses like "bad soil" but I know that is difficult to deal with for me as well! So, first I make certain, I have poked a hole(s) in the base of the clay-soil hole, with a "bar"! Then I add a little of the new soil, no fertilizer if a brand new rose, until it is established, set the rose in, and hill up, and water well for the next three or four days, never from overhead!

Hey guys! I have followed your advice and planted my roses outside! They were all suppose to be the same kind but are growing very differently. Any guesses which type of roses I have on my hands? Please don't mind the weeds in my flower bed 🙈

It will be easier to guess when they all bloom.
