Standard roses (-or "standardised" as compared to "normal") are roses which are grafted onto a longer stem. The stem will remain at a fixed height and the top will grow according to the habits of the grafted roses.
This gives the rose more height, often with dramatic effect. They can be used as focal points, or massed tall colour, often above smaller growing plants and allowing multiple use of the same garden space.
