It is a great hybrid tea. Lots of flowers to cut (last a long time) and easy to live with. This one is a grafted plant, started from a cheap "body-bag" (less than best grade) from the local hardware store. Hope it does well for you, too!

What is a standard rose? I'm pretty new to roses so I don't know all the jargon yet :)

I was going to write about them myself but HMF glossary does it so much better.

Thanks for that. I didn't know you could train a rose to be a standard. Pretty cool stuff!
