In the recent post, Floral Beanie discuss about rose horticulturist – Henry Bennett. He was a pioneer in the systematic, deliberate hybridization of roses. It is inspired by the systematic breeding used in raising the cattle. He is considered the father of the Hybrid Tea class of rose. Important cultivars are including the Hybrid Tea ‘Lady Mary Fitzwilliam’ (1882), a parent of ‘Mme. Caroline Testout’ and the Hybrid Perpetuals ‘Captain Hayward’ (1893) and ‘Mrs. John Laing’ (1887).

Henry Bennett from a Cattle Farmer to A Rose Hybridizer

Henry Bennett was a cattle and wheat farmer before he started his career as a rose hybridizer. In 1870 to 1872, he visited rose hybridizers in France and he was surprised that the masters rose hybridization there did not practice deliberate hybridization through controlled pollination.

Henry Bennett Glass House System for Rose Breeding

On returning home from France, Henry Bennett built a heated glass house, which allow him to keep his parent rose plants in pots and work nearly year-round with Tea roses, and gave him a much longer bloom season with the Hybrid Perpetuals. While other British rose hybridizers worked primarily in summer, Bennett’s system allowed him to begin cross-pollination in March.

Henry Bennett Shaken the Rose Hybridization Industry

Henry Bennett first introduces his hybridized rose in 1879. He was the first to publish and guarantee the parentage of his roses. He described these roses as having better repeat bloom, higher petal count, and being ‘altogether different in type’ compared to other roses. In 1883, the National Rose Society introduced the gold medal, awarded to the most outstanding new rose introduced at one of its rose shows. Bennett won the first and second Gold Medals awarded, with ‘Her Majesty’ (Hybrid Perpetual) in 1883 and ‘Mrs. John Laing’ (Hybrid Perpetual) in 1885.
