English STANDARD TREE ROSES

English Standard Tree Roses, with their height and spectacular display of blooms, are a simple way of creating impact in the garden. Formed by budding three shrubs on a stem, they make impressive focal points when placed in strategic positions. They can be used to line a path, frame a doorway, bring height to a border or add character to a bare wall. We believe our English Roses, with their natural bushy growth and beautiful, fragrant flowers are the finest of all roses for growing as standards. For dramatic effect, plant three or four closely together in a border.
