Old Hybrid Tea
"This group was the only repeat-blooming one known to the Europeans until the advent
of the China roses. It had indeed been known seemingly in at least one variety ('Bifera')
since Roman times. Another cultivar ('Tous-les-Mois') appeared in the 17th century, and
breeding work in earnest began on them in the 1810's. Vibert and his successors in his
firm had a very great interest in this group, and introduced by far the greatest number of
them, the last one ('Rembrandt') of their long-pursued line coming out in 1883. They
typically have stocky, healthy, decorative bushes, with the often exquisitely double,
fragrant blossoms nestling in the leaves. There are several races of them: the Biferas,
with tall, arching growth; the Portlands, showing Gallica influence; the Tous-les-Mois,
the typical sort, bushy and compact with tight blossoms; and the Trianons, tall, vigorous,
Hybrid-Perpetual like growth with clusters of flowers. The colors range from white through
all the pinks to deepest red. 'Jacques Cartier', `Yolande d'Aragon', `Portland Rose',
`Rose du Roi', `Joasine Hanet', `Marbree'."
