Standard Roses(also referred to as Stem Roses), are a variation of the normal bush rose grafted at a height of 80cm (or 800mm). They can create a formal appearance if planted in a row or as a feature in garden beds. They can also be grown in large tubs on the veranda. The head of the standard can vary in shape, Hybrid Teas will grow in a V shape, Floribundas in general keep to a rounder shape. David Austins can also vary with each variety. It is important to secure them to a sturdy stake to prevent breakage in high wind.
