Big Ross is named for Dan's Dad. I got this from Dan in 2001 when he introduced it. I love it! It is big and beautiful! Another great one from Dan! Very special! Will post a photo when I can.


Added note on 9/7/08: I always look forward seeing 'Big Ross' in bloom every Summer! It's always so beautiful! One of my favorites!
