Standard or tree roses are not a specific species or type of rose but rather a distinct way of growing a variety of roses. Generally, buds from a hybrid tea, floribunda, grandiflora or miniature rose cultivar are grafted on top of a tall trunk from a wild rootstock.

Tree roses make a great statement in the garden. However, they are not especially winter hardy so they take special protection. In areas with severe winters, the best place for them is in a greenhouse.
