One of the top ten roses of the world and the best landscape white around, Iceberg is extremely disease resistant, vigorous and floriferous. The long pointed buds and crisp white flowers are borne in great profusion with the least of care. The bushy rounded plant is robed in dark green foliage. Great for hedges, in combination plantings with annuals, perennials and shrubs. Truly vigorous and hardy, this rose will bloom throughout the summer.
Also, the climbing English sport of the world's best white landscape rose is available. It has all the great qualities of Iceberg in a vigorous Climber. Blooms on old wood only. Flowers more on established plants. Clean.

||Roses bloom the best in full sun. Choose a location with at least 6 hours of sun per day. Morning sun is more kind to the plant.
||Rich, sandy loam is the preferred soil for roses. Amend difficult soils with humus, or consider building up the beds to ensure good drainage. Roses will not tolerate soggy, wet roots. Provide a slow, deep soaking with each irrigation. Sandy soils require more watering than clay soils. Hot temperatures should prompt more frequent irrigation. Only wet the foliage in very early morning hours.
