The birth of the ubiquitous Hybrid Tea rose occurred around the mid 1880’s and eventuated from some fairly random crosses between Hybrid Perpetual and Tea Roses. The resulting off-spring were not called Hybrid Teas but classified according to the dominant pollen parent. It wasn’t until 1884 that Hybrid Tea Roses were listed (in a catalogue put out by Dickson’s of Northern Ireland) as a distinct group. Many years later in 1898 the National Rose Society finally accepted these “new” roses as a separate class. In modern times Hybrid Teas have been re-classified officially as “Large Flowered Roses”. However in all my many years of working in horticulture I have never heard them referred to as such and it seems the term Hybrid Tea is here to stay.
