Cultivation Of A Hybrid Tea
The Rouge Royal is a hybrid tea rose.
The hybrid tea roses are large flowered roses, with long, straight , upright stems.
Hybrid tea roses came about by cross breeding two types of roses. Many crosses inherited a susceptibility to diseases from their ancestors.
The world's first hybrid tea was born in 1867 by La France. And then thought to be raised French nurseryman Jean-Baptiste Guillot. It was done by hybridising a tea rose..Madame Bravy with a hybrid perpetual, Madame Victor Verdier. And there you have it a hybrid tea.

How To Prune A Hybrid Tea Rose Bush
Hybrid tea roses usually consist of large, fully double flowers
If you have a hybrid tea rose bush that has never been pruned or has not been pruned for a few years, there will be more deadwood and crossing shoots that will have to be removed.
If this is the case then you need to start by removing any dead or diseased wood.
Then you will need to prune all of the main stems by about half., or about 8-10 inches off of the ground. It is fine if you don't want to cut that much off, it really is a matter of personal opinion..I would however , not cut anymore than than 8 to 10 inches off.
Whenever it is at all possible, prune to an outward-pointing bud to give the bush more spread rather than a congested center.
Next up, remove any crossings or congested shoots. Most of these shoots can be cut back to their point of origin, however, if these shoots are really sparse, then just cut back to a healthy bud that is close the the base.
Strip off all the leaves, Seriously remove all the leaves...clean up under and around the bush , making sure to get all the fallen leaves..This is because if the rose had any fungus or any other disease, by removing the leaves, leaving nothing behind, you will have all new, healthy new foliage.
The bush at this point will seem sparse , but take heart , new and vigorous growth will soon appear and be beautiful once again. With even healthy growth and plenty of gorgeous flowers.
