Tea roses belong to the group of noble roses. They are very complex hybrids. They originate from Rose chinensis-odorate and roses of the Near East, and European roses as well. They are called tea roses mostly because of the smell of the flower that resembles the Chinese tea. They all share the same features, that is, the large, most often single flower with over 25 petals, beautiful and large leaves and also a really pleasing smell. For the large flowered ones, the diameter of the flower scales between 14 and 15 cm, but for the normal ones, between 8 and 10 cm. The branch forms 1, 3 or 5 buds, and the length of the branches scales between 20 and 80cm. These features are the main reason why these roses are used to gain cut flowers. The bush is 50 to 150 cm long. It is important to protect them from low temperatures during winter. Almost all of the species smells, the ones with the strongest fragrance are the red and lilac roses, while the white and yellow types usually have a mild scent. They are planted in groups, classes, and flowerbeds, single or tied to other plants. The distance of planting is 40cm or 5 to 6 roses per square meter.
