Visions in White

Two white roses in my garden that I wouldn’t be without.


Moondance is a beautiful floribunda with classic form. This rose has a creamy white center. Blooms in flushes throughout the blooming season. Moderate to good disease resistance.


Iceberg aka “America’s Rose” is widely grown and for good reason! Beautiful full shrub that blooms from spring till fall. White blooms open quickly to reveal pretty yellow stamens. Excellent for hedges or as a stand alone shrub. Great disease resistance.

I have had a recurring dream for sometime that I am standing in the middle of an all white rose garden and that I am the only colorful creature there. Wonder what it means????
