    Medium to Tall rosebushes are actually dependent upon the climate of the area planted. In warmer climates roses will grow to the tall end of their range of heights, whereas in cold climates they will typically stick more towards the medium height of the range. However hybrid teas like Mr. Lincoln will be tall just about anywhere. Tropicana always gets 3 feet tall here in my Colorado USA rose beds and a bit taller by seasons end. Bewitched is a bit taller typically but dependent on it planting location she can scale back to the 3 feet with a bit more height by seasons end. Typically I plant the taller rose bushes (hybrid teas) towards the back of the rose beds, some grandifloras as well. While the floribundas go up front. I have had some floribundas get tall on me that needed to be moved to the edges or back further, such as Tuscan Sun.
