With its elegant and sumptuous white blooms and a subtle scent, the Honor Hybrid Tea Rose is a great choice for any garden. A vigorous rose with upright stems, this rose is perfect for cutting and bringing indoors. From early summer until fall, Honor’s dark green foliage is adorned with its creamy-white, double blooms. Growing to 4-5 feet high, it is ideal for the middle or back of a border.
Bred by Warriner, the Honor Hybrid Tea Rose develops an upright habit and provides a sturdy scaffold for its stunning flowers. As a tall-growing rose, it provides height and structure to a border and looks spectacular when grown en masse or as an informal hedge. This hybrid tea can also be grown in a container as long as it is large enough to support the plant’s mature size of 4-5 feet tall by 2-3 feet wide.
Honor Hybrid Tea Rose Care
As with all roses, the Honor Hybrid Tea prefers to be grown in a fertile and well-drained soil. For the best blooms, a sheltered spot in full sun is recommended. Once established, watering is generally only necessary during hot and dry spells. However, regular watering is required after planting and for the first season or two. To maintain plant health and encourage repeat blooms, a rose fertilizer can be applied during the growing season as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
As a hybrid tea, this rose is best pruned using a pair of sanitized and sharp pruners in late winter or early spring. Start by removing any dead or diseased branches and shorten the main stems to around 6 inches high by cutting just above a bud. Regular deadheading during the growing season can help this rose bloom right up until the fall.
Honor Hybrid Tea Rose Spacing
With its upright form, the Honor Hybrid Tea Rose is perfect for planting out in groups or rows. When growing this rose as a hedge, a spacing of 3 feet is advisable depending on how closely you want them to knit together.
