Just a note that might help those on this forum in colder parts of the country, on protecting these guys and ladies for winter...take your canopy of the rose(the top part of the standard), and prune back 1/3, remembering to cut out any dead, diseased and damaged bits. Take some chicken wire and make a cylindrical cone the height of the rose and then fill the inside with maple leaves, pine boughs,(chopped up)..tuck them in tight, right to the top of the canopy and if you want, bind some burlap around the very outside of the chicken wire...pretty good protection...Elaine
