Iceberg Rose

Iceberg! Possibly the most popular, well-known (and well-grown) white rose of all time! Finally my Iceberg roses get the mention they deserve.

 They put on such a show.

A Good Archway Rose

I grow the normal Iceberg bush rose and the climbing variety. They grow well on fences, over archways, and in mixed borders.

I have no complaints with my white Iceberg roses - even when it rains and the white flowers get blotched with pink I love them. I have read garden writers who dislike this look. I'd put up with the blotches to have the rain!

White flowering roses form a good, strong link between other coloured roses - their great contribution to my type of garden is often overlooked. This is the very first time I've bothered to take a close-up photograph, though - Iceberg, I'm so sorry!

I've always grown Iceberg roses - there are bushes in almost every garden border, and one of my later rose purchases was a Pink Iceberg, which I love.

The climbing white Iceberg roses on the house fences were here when we first arrived. I used to prune them so carefully - these days I sometimes just use the hedge clippers. I've also grown several from cuttings, though they are not as robust in growth.

The flowers are not really suitable for picking for the house, though with so many others to choose from this isn't really a problem!

 What a beautiful rose!
