Tea Rose Morning is an example of the most popular rose flower in the world. Long the staple of florists, the tea rose produces the signature buds and flowers that people often reference when thinking of rose flowers.
The many petal wonders of a tea rose also produce a light scented fragrance that carries on the spring and summer air. These roses are known to bud and bloom singularly on a stem and not in a cluster like other roses. Gardeners and florists love them for their ability to produce flowers throughout the length of the growing season.
Often a rose will bloom, add its beauty to the world, and then die and be replaced by another on the same bush. This allow for the greatest enjoyment of these rose bushed for the length of the season.
These roses do need some care though. Monitoring for disease on their leaves and watered regularly is necessary. Careful pruning of the plants before they bloom is also needed to keep the most air circulation around the leafs and buds to make sure a full harvest of flowers.
Further, in hot locations such as areas of Texas and the south, these flowers usually require mulch around its base to help make sure that the roots keep moisture and are kept cooler than the rest of the plant.
What fascinated me about this particular rose was the blending of the orange and light pinks in the petals. It’s as if they took an orange and pink rose and blended them together to create a colorful start to a walk through the local rose garden. Truly this picture is a fashionable addition to your day.
