Rusty emails: I have 10 of these 'Big Ben' roses planted around my driveway, and I might add I have 113 other rose varieties in my collection, and the 'Big Ben' is by far the King of all red roses in my opinion, with rosebuds the size of apples (no kidding) and very hardy, wonderful plants. I was wondering if there are any other roses out there that have 'Big Ben' as a parent? [Rusty, we're adding information to the database all the time, so please check back.]
