Hybrid Perpetual Roses

Roses that are Classified as Hybrid Perpetuals

Hybrid Perpetual Roses were the rage in Victorian England. They flourished with the introduction of the rose show which caused all the attention of the public to focus on the shape and size of the blossom and none of the attention to the viability of the plant as a garden asset. It was during this stretch of history in which was uttered the infamous 'the garden for the rose' phrase, an utterance that would, from time to time, undermine rose gardening in particular or all flower gardening in general.

Hopeful rose growers see hybrid perpetuals as combining remontance, fragrance, and large flowers into single plants. More skeptical rose growers see hybrid perpetuals as being distillation of all the bad characteristics that can be found among roses into a single package. Arguably, the best hybrid perpetuals tend to be the least characteristic of the group. Frau Karl Drushki is, technically, a hybrid tea rose in both form and genetic make-up and it is one of the best white hybrid teas extant. Paul Neyron's flowers are large and fragrant and the plant suffers from black spot; it would belong just as well among the bourbons. It is, perhaps, a little more difficult to place Mrs John Laing in another group; this rose is upright but well branched, prone to disease but vigorous to overcome it, remontant but without a great sacrifice of floral quantity, and productive of fragrant, old style flowers. Something like this might be said for Souvenir du Dr. Jamain or Reine des Violettes.

Hybrid perpetuals will appreciate exemplary care. Given this, several of the cultivars listed below might be good garden choices.
