I have ordinary bush roses here at home. I had a couple of standard roses along the driveway and I can't remember what happened to those. They were beautiful orange ones too, not the usual white ones that EVERYONE plants. I wanted to be different and they did look quite striking. I like any kind of rose. They are my favourite flower.
All my roses are standard. Love the colours but have only a couple of the perfumed ones. A couple of my bushes I've had since the early 70's and they are still going strong. My orange one looks like a small cabbage when it blooms.
