Tree Roses
L D Braithwaite Tree Rose
With their large fragrant flowers and strong, bushy growth, many of the English Roses make exceptionally fine tree roses.

Tree roses are a great way to create height in the garden. It is important to make sure the surrounding roses are low-growing and are kept hard pruned so that they do not reach the head of the standard.

Tree roses make superb centrepieces for small gardens, giving a highly decorative, rather formal effect. In a large bed, a group of three or four planted together (about 2 ft apart) will look most impressive.

One traditional use is to plant two rows of tree roses, set some distance apart on each side of a garden path.

They will create focal points in smaller lawns where a tree might be too overpowering, or would cast too much shade.

All David Austin Tree Roses will repeat flower well, and are budded at a height of 3 ft. To create each tree rose, three buds are grafted onto a single Dr Huey stem.
