Very cool! And such a thick and healthy looking trunk.

I have two standard roses. I should say had. One is still fine but is in the shed for the winter. The other (Lady Emma Hamilton) got sat on my a bull. We had a worker out to bulldoze around our pond and he left the gate open (ARG!). The bull seems to have thought that Lady Em would be good to scratch his bottom with. Geesh! Luckily no other damage done. Every year I seem to lose a rose to some sort of farm animal relate accident. =~/

I also have a couple of rose trees but they are not photogenic at all. They look like poles with brambles pasted on top. That picture makes me want to find a tree rose that drapes gracefully like the one Paeoniarockii posted!

Does it look as if it has more than one graft point?

I had a standard Iceberg that draped rather nicely. I might have a photo of it somewhere. I gave it away when we moved and the photos are probably still packed in a box in a closet.

That might not be a standard with grafts. It could be an artfully pruned shrub.

Oh, yes, I think I see what you mean. The trunk forks at the top but also has a few lower branches. I wish we knew which rose it is. Any ideas anyone?

Sort of an espaliered rose? Hmmmm, now that opens a world of possibilities!

This looks like Masquerade or one of it's relations, they can be climbers and I think is what it could be.

I can see the larger rose on top so the smaller roses have been implanted, yes.

Yes, she looks like a bride. In the pot is my "Baby Blanket" tree rose from J&P. In the 2nd pic you get a better overall view of it at the back right corner. I became smitten when I saw one at a home & garden tour that draped downward like a ballet skirt. I also have 3 groundcover ones around the corner.
