Look at this fine specimen of a rose. I've been looking for this picture for a few months now and finally found it. This beauty was a full 8 inches across and hands down the largest rose we've ever grown.
Now before you move to The Redland just to grow bigger roses =) I have to mention that it never happened again. LOL We still have the rose bush and we still treat it to the same loving care but we've yet to see another rose of this size.
And no, that is not a child's hand. That's my mother's hand under the rose and she's full grown too! =)
The Redland is still a great place to live though. So even if we can't promise you'll always get the biggest roses in Miami-Dade, there's lots of reasons to check it out.
Hope your week is off to a great start!
