Positive mamalatte On May 12, 2009, mamalatte from Urbandale, IA wrote:

I have grown this rose for about 8 years now. My plant is a grafted plant that never gets more than 2' tall by about 18" wide. The blooms are on the smaller side, perhaps 2.5", deeply cupped and intensely fragrant. This is my favorite-smelling Austin. I will never be without this rose, simply because of the fragrance.
