A rose tree consists of a long, slender cane, 32 ? 36 inches in length, void of any foliage. The 'tree' is created by making a graft at the top of the central cane to support the hybrid tea, grandiflora or floribunda top. The root stock is usually a two to three year old ?Dr. Huey? rootstock. They are typically available in four sizes: 18-inch miniature, 24-inch patio, and a 36-inch or 48-inch standard. If you want to try grafting your own tree rose you may be able to get hardy rootstock from a local Rose Society.
