Hybrid Perpetual (HP)
Hybrid Perpetual roses, also known as Remontant roses, are a class of old garden roses that originated from crosses between Bourbon and Hybrid China roses in the mid-19th century. They are characterized by their large, double blooms and strong fragrance, as well as their repeat blooming throughout the growing season.
Hybrid Perpetual roses are known for their tall and upright growth habit, making them a popular choice for gardeners looking to create a formal hedge or boundary. Their foliage is typically dark green and glossy, providing a beautiful backdrop for their stunning blooms. These roses require regular pruning and care to maintain their shape and promote healthy growth.
Some popular varieties of Hybrid Perpetual roses include ‘Baroness Rothschild’, ‘Charles Lefebvre’, and ‘Frau Karl Druschki’. These roses have won many awards for their beauty and fragrance, and are beloved by gardeners and rose enthusiasts around the world.
