Is this a single bush, or more than one?

This is a single bush. It's one of the few grafted bushes (vs.own root) I have left. All my other grafts died here in Kansas (Zone 6/7). This gal has remained pretty healthy.

Very nice! I planted a hedge of these about 3.5 ft apart and looking back I'm unsure if they'd create the hedge effect I was going for that far apart. All except one are own root.

Amazing that it's planted so close to trees and english ivy and still healthy! What type of tree is it planted next to?

From the few leaves just hanging down at the top of the picture it looks like a birch tree, Betula sp.

AMAZING Golden Celebration you have! I bought this rose recently and had some questions: About how tall is it here?
Do you have it planted near the woods?
Do you shape it at all or let it sprawl?

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!

It makes a very attractive standard rose 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!
