My Big Momma Rose bush has been very vigorous and disease resistant, it's a great rose.

Please see the HOW DO I.. for help on uploading photos. Meanwhile, it appears this photo was a duplicate of one you have uploaded earlier so we have removed it. A really nice photo but we don't need two of them ;)

Thanks for sharing your photos AND your experience.

I hope more people post BUSH-SHOT pictures: showing leaves, thorns, growth-habit. Nurseries have plenty of pics. of the blooms, but the bush-shot are valuable for folks to choose WHERE to plant their rose. Pics. of leaves are valuable: for my alkaline clay, I shop for glossy & DARK-GREEN foliage that can tolerate high pH soil.

Pictures of leaves & thorns & bush-shape help folks to determine if they are sent the wrong rose, or a bare-root is mislabeled. Pictures of close-up of thorns are useful for those with small children, or planting a rose at a high-traffic area.
