Coconut Ice Climbing Rose
Coconut Ice is the fluffiest, prettiest, 'pastelest' rose in my garden. It's a modest climber, pale pink-white in colour. The flower colours are reminiscent of the classic sweets made by busy mums for cake stalls and school fundraisers.
Coconut Ice Roses
This is a confusing rose to Google search for. There is another Coconut Ice rose, bred (as far as I can judge) in Australia, and it's dark pink. I also found a picture of a Botanic Gardens rose label 'Coconut Ice - Walker 1981', for which I can find no entries whatsoever. OK. So Botanic Rose Gardens can make a mistake?
My Coconut Ice climbs on an archway in the Hazelnut Orchard. It looks old-fashioned, but it was bred by Horner and released in 2003. The official name is HORlovesong. It's a real sweetie!
