W. KORDES' SÖHNE is one of the leading breeders and producers of rose plants for garden roses and cut roses in the world. Over 20 years ago KORDES stopped the use of fungicides on their trial grounds, where new breedings were evaluated years before their introduction on the market. This meant it was possible to accurately assess and select the truly healthy varieties amongst the thousands of seedlings on trial. This new breeding philosophy has been noticeable to all rose lovers around the world. The KORDES company alone has withdrawn more than 100 older varieties from their assortment which, to their opinion, are not competitive any longer. This has made way for new, better and healthier varieties.
If you are in search of roses that are beautiful, disease tolerant and easy to care for, look no further then Kordes' bred roses.
Hybrid Tea or Large Flowered roses have been the leading class of rose since their development in 1867.
They produce classic, full petaled flowers with one bloom per long stem, although side buds may be evident. Many have a fragrance and are excellent for cut flowers.
The general growth habit of a Hybrid Tea rose is a V shape, averaging 1.5m tall and 80cm wide. Please check the discriptions for each variety. Note that growth size is a guide only - ultimate size will depend on the growing conditions in your garden and the variety chosen.
