>Friday’s Floribunda – "Iceberg"


“Iceberg” is a wonderful white floribunda rose.
We planted this rose in the early spring and it has bloomed in flushes since.
We have found this rose to be quite disease resistant, only a slight mite issue,
and very little or no blackspot all summer.
I can see why this rose has been a favorite of rose gardeners for the past 50 years!

  1. >Hi Chris. Like you I just planted Iceberg this summer and I am so loving this rose. It has bloomed three times for me already and I like this so much in a rose. More bloom for the buck is a great thing. Also I like the new roses you just got for your new bed. It will be wonderful to watch yours bloom. You have a few now. LOL!
