A picture can't do these 3 Big Momma blooms justice, they are really lovely and sweetly fragrant.

'Big Momma' looks lovely! How do you like 'Darcey Bussell'?

RE: Big Momma, Etc

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.

Meredith, Pink Peace and Tiffany took my breath away!! I've never heard of Meredith. What do you think of this rose?
Wow! Gorgeous!!

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.

Sara-Ann,

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.
