Iceberg Climbing Rose

The fence-line which marks the end of the driveway lawn was originally planted with roses. Two climbing white Iceberg roses hugged the fence, spreading outwards and upwards. These are early garden photographs - the roses have since weakened in strength as other shrubs have taken all the space and sunshine.

The photograph below was taken in the summer of 1998. Nothing much has changed - and for once the size of this garden border has stayed the same!

 Iceberg roses grow well against a fence.

The large hybrid tea rose on the corner had flowers which were a rusty brick colour. It died off shortly after this photograph was taken. I never knew why!
