For spring pruning remove old, dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back remaining canes by about 1/2. In colder areas, you’ll probably need to prune a little more than it. A popular old favorite striped Hybrid Tea rose, suitable for a garden border or patio container.
