About Flowers: Rose types

What is the difference between a standard rose and a garden rose? The garden rose shown in the bottom pic has a beautiful "cabbage" like shape. The standard rose (shown above) has a graceful spiral shape. Additionally, garden roses are often fragrant, which makes them popular for bridal bouquets.

Spray roses have clusters of blooms, typically 3-5 buds per stem. They are smaller than the standard rose. They mix well with standard roses and are terrific to use for corsage and boutonnieres.
