Haven't heard of totem roses before Thee Surprised - or is that just you stretching a point Laughing

What's the rose - pretty isn't it - you'll have to get all gussied up to match at your next photo opportunity. Will they go in the garden or stay in pots.

No they are called totems, lots of grafts all the way up the main stem Shocked , getting the concrete cutters in and making a new garden bed out the front tongue , don't use half the parking area so may as well fill it up with more roses, one finished will get a pic in my Sunday bests Very Happy

Wallara Roses are the only place I know that does make them jocolor google as they have a website

How do you keep them in shape TheE - I think they are absolutely stunning. How thorny are they, do you think they would fit in my future Fairy Garden? Gorgeous!

you treat them as a normal standard rose, the same but with multi grafts up the main stem, cant wait till spring, very exciting stuff bounce and I will just prune them to shape as I go along flower

Beautiful. What is it's name? I saw them at Springpark roses last year, dormant. Have never seen one in flower. You do have nice friends. (and cute doggies)
