Top 10: Hybrid Tea Show Roses (2014)
This list is not my own personal list of what I show, but the most popular that I see at national & local shows that are actually put in front of the judges. Hybrid Tea's are still the most popular rose with the general public, so here is my top 10 Hybrid Tea show roses.
1: Red Devil
2: Silver Anniversary
3: Admiral Rodney
4: Andrea Stelzer
6: Hot Princess
9: Julia's Kiss
My own personal prediction for roses to watch out for in future would be:
Lowri: A new amber coloured hybrid tea with a lovely pin centre, colour that lasts, and all on a healthy vigorous bush.
Princess Nobuku: Lovely soft pink colour, quite vigorous with foliage almost to the soil.
Affirm: Soft pink high centered bloom, plenty of body, the only downside of this HT would be that the petals may be a little bit thin (so watch the rain!)
