Weeping Standard Roses
Quite possibly the ultimate garden focal point - Weeping Standard roses are a fantastic way to add height and colour into your garden. With large clusters of colour, these are varieties which begin to cascade once they have no ground to support the growth will trail downwards.
There are different styles of weeping rose, some are longer cascades which trail towards the floor, while others are wider heads which trail slightly. Both are equally as beautiful and dramatic as one another.
Weeping standard roses make a fantastic focal point when placed in a central border, placed down a driveway, within borders or in large pots. Where placed in a container, they must be placed in large, heavy half barrel sized pots to counter balance the weight of the large heads. A stake and tie should also be used to ensure that the stem is protected from cross winds.
People are often fooled into thinking that Weeping Standard roses are hard to care for, but they require little to no pruning - only shaping where required, they also do not require training to encourage trails, it happens naturally. Dead head clusters through the summer to encourage new bloom.
