The rose tree or rose standard is an eye-catching horticultural contrivance. Standard roses have a hardy rose rootstock, a rose cane to serve as the trunk and a showy hybrid rose on the top.
To ensure the best show, the hybrid rose should be disease resistant, hardy and a re-bloomer. Used to create height and a formal look to gardens standard roses have been popular for many years and are readily available. Excellent in containers, they create a striking silhouette and allow you to add a second story to your rose garden, with no need for extra space!
Similar to most other roses, they need to be pruned every year to prevent the head form getting to big and heavy for the stem as well as increasing flowering. Any suckers that appear from the rootstock need to be removed. Standard roses are more suited to growing in the ground where they can develop a strong root system, however they can be grown in pots or containers provided they are given proper support.
