Hello,
Help! My tea hybrid has lost its blooms recently. I planted/potted in April and they were beautiful blooms but they have all died. I removed the dry petals but am unsure what to do to care for it in hopes new buds might come back before the season is over. Is it dying or will it bloom again? Thank you so much.
Any advice is well appreciated!!

Type this - Deadheading a Rose Five Leaflet Leaf Set - in youtube. Paul Zimmerman video will explain. Your rose is ok. Dang it...I thought video would be more detailed. You have to cut the old blooms off, for it to bloom faster. Go down from old flower to where leaves are growing , and cut off old flower about a quarter inch above that set of leaves.

At a angle like the picture shows is best.

How many hours of sun is it getting? Ideally, they need 6-8 hrs.

Yes, you want to snip off those old buds as shown above, otherwise the rose could put it's energy into producing rose hips (seed pods).

A strategy you can use if you don't have or don't want to use pruners is just to reach with your fingers and snap off the remaining center of the bloom. This is called "deadheading" and it's a regular task when growing roses, assuming they bloom of course Smiling I enjoy deadheading since it gets me up close and personal with the roses, and reminds me that they have indeed been blooming. Otherwise, your roses look healthy.

Cynthia I don't usually follow the official rules either. Especially on small plants. I might take off the first leaf set. I leave as many as I can for the plant. I'm always in a hurry to do it, to get more blooms. I had a small panic attack seeing the op's old blooms sitting there. I confess I probably killed a couple of my first roses chopping at them obsessively. Whistling

Thank you for all the helpful info!! I cut them all off today juat above a 5 leaflet and am eager to get new blooms. I also added some rose food to the container in hopes that may help the process. Question- can we grow new plants from the rose hips?
Thanks again every one- I was panicking thinking that it was dying Thank You!
Here is a pic I snapped when it was at its best
Oh it is definitely getting full sun from 5:30 am to about 2pm

Rebecca one thing I've noticed about hybrid teas, (and I'm sure it doesn't apply to all) is they are a bit slower to rebloom. Probably because they usually bloom on thick single stems. I love them as much as any other, but a mix of things makes me happier. I've noticed shrubs and floribundas (probably a lot of antiques too) will bloom on smaller stems that grow faster. The faster blooming ones usually won't make awesome long stem cut flowers, but I put them in tiny things like shot glasses if I have to. Something you might want to keep in mind. I'm not knocking hybrid teas, it's just something I'd wish I'd known when I first started out impatiently waiting for my first roses to bloom. Smiling

Thanks for the heads up WV. I will definitely have to look for some other varieties to grow. I do like the antiques and when I am feeling more confident-I keep this rose bush alive- I plan to try my luck with them. Thanks again and enjoy your summer and roses:)

My grandmother taught me to deadhead the way Nippstress suggested. And, you know what? For a brand new plant, that's a kinder sort of deadheading. Cut to lower leaves to push new LONG canes but do that LATER. Your rose is a baby.

And you know, they do fade and fall. It's what they do.

You can grow new roses from the hips, but they won't look remotely like what you have. Their ancestry is far too mixed to breed true.
