Hybrid Teas

nonnie33(8)October 31, 2004

I would like to know what are some good Hybrid Tea roses to grow in our hot humid climate down here? I live in New Orleans and I grow roses and I can safely say Paradise is a good hot weather rose, but I would like to know some more that can take the heat?

I haven't had very good luck with hybrid teas but I can suggest some other roses such as chinas, polyanthas and noisettes. I've heard that the older "teas" do well in LA and are very disease resistant.

I just started buying roses and a few weeks ago I went to Gardensmith on the west bank. They have a nice large selection of roses that do well in New Orleans, many are antique roses. They were very helpful and were recommended by other Garden web members.

Queen Elizabeth and St Patrick love our weather. The florabundas, Livin Easy, Iceberg and Red Rascal also do well. I recommend Belinda's Dream, if you want Hybrid Tea and smell with a disease-free plant. The tea Mrs Dudley Cross does well here. So do most of the hybrid musk roses like Penelope and the polyanthas like Marie Daly. You might try a few climbers like Don Juan or New Dawn. They are all great season long rebloomers.
