I am sure you must be wondering what makes these roses different from others. They belong to the cultivar group of roses. They are produced by cross breeding of two different types. The first official hybrid tea was produced in France. It was Jean-Baptiste Guillot who accidentally bred the Hybrid Perpetual (Madame Victor Verdier) with a tea rose (Madame Bravy). The resultant flower was a flower that had silvery pink blooms with bright pink tips. These flowers were very large and were about 5 inches in diameter.
They love slightly acidic soil conditions and require fertilizers to grow. During early spring time, you need to feed a balanced fertilizer to your plants weekly. You should stop feeding your plants about 6 weeks before the first frost. During winter, you need to protect the rose plants from winter damage. This can be done by cutting about 30 to 36 inches of the tall canes and tying the tips together. Clear off any dead leaves, stems, around the plant. You should till about 12 inches of soil around the center of the plant. Then cover the soil mounds with straw, leaves, etc. Mulch about 15 to 18 inches of the soil mound. After winter passes, you can remove the mulch and soil from around the plant base. Leave only about 2 inches of mulch to make sure water is retained around the plant during summer, and prevent weed growth.
