"My philosophy is that Mother Nature will take care of things," said Bendel, a Jefferson native who moved to Morristown 53 years ago after marrying his wife, Marilyn.

"I don't give them anything special. I don't use any fertilizer." No pesticides, either. "I just planted it there and it kept growing and growing and growing."

 A representative of Great Swamp Greenhouses - where Bendel bought the bush 15 years ago - was on hand to certify the height of Bendel's rose bush.

The previous Guinness world record for the tallest self-supported rose bush was held by a San Diego family whose rose bush measures 13 feet 3 inches tall.
