A picture can't do these 3 Big Momma blooms justice, they are really lovely and sweetly fragrant.
Drop Dead Red
And finally, Pink Peace
What a lovely collection --thanks for sharing.
'Big Momma' looks lovely! How do you like 'Darcey Bussell'?
Thank you, Kate and Iris. Iris - I am new to Austins, this is my first experience with them. I ordered DB and Christopher Marlowe In July from the Roses Unlimited sale. From what I can tell so far I think I'm going to like it. Hopefully by next season I'll know more.
Loved you rose photos. Pink peace is " shocking pink"
Beautiful blooms! I really like SHEILA'S PERFUME.
Thank you Inga.
And thank you, Beth
Oooooh!!! I love pinks!!!
Meredith, Pink Peace and Tiffany took my breath away!! I've never heard of Meredith. What do you think of this rose?
Carol - Thank you. Meredith has been a good rose for me. The color is such a subtle pink, but it is pretty and has a good fragrance too. It has several buds right now, that probably will never get a chance to open. Seems to be a low growing rose, mine hasn't gotten very tall. Mine came from Edmunds, I don't know if it's available from other sources or not.
Yeah it's a shame when there are blooms that never get to open.
Very pretty roses. I see a possible reason for Big Momma's name; that bloom looks huge!
Lynn - Yes, the rose has been huge this fall, it;s much prettier than I thought it would be and it's actually more pink than the picture shows, pleasant surprise. Carol - I posted another picture of Meredith. I really thought it was going to freeze, but we dodged another bullet, so the buds started opening, I was surprised.
They're all lovely, Sara! Those Big Momma's are a beautiful bouquet all by themselves.
