Don't know if anyone else is growing this rose. The picture above was taken a few days ago, the bush is in full bloom right now and it is gorgeous. it is a real showy rose, maybe not exhibition quality, but pretty in the garden, really stands out. The color may not appeal to everyone, but I'm enjoying it. I will admit the photos of it on the different websites aren't that appealing, guess something told me to give it a chance, love it!

Oops! Beth and Carol I appreciate the nice comments. Got overly excited about how the bush looked this morning, forgot my manners.

Full bloom!!! Any pics? I love the roses (who doesn't) that have big gorgeous flowers and yet look fantastic as a bush - like Valencia and Pink Peace. Love to see a pic or two!! Hint, hint.

Carol - Took some pics this morning. It is hard for a camera (mine anyway) to capture a full bush shot. Doesn't have that many blooms right now. All together I think it had about 16. Hopefully it will bloom at least one more time, I'll try to get a better picture.

Ooooh!!! Lots of flowers, love the color - I can see why you like it!!

The name is nice to me - Big Momma was the mama owl's name in the Fox and the Hound Disney movie.
