White iceberg rose is another of my favorite roses, and one that thrives in my Mediterranean Southern California climate. I planted an entire hedge of iceberg roses as an entrance to our syrah vineyard and nearby nestled sitting area. My intention was to create a pleasing color palette for one’s eye from our home and surrounding our nearby cozy sitting area. White iceberg rose has an incredible elegance about it with prolific sprays of pure-white blooms with dark green foliage. It makes for a romantic and elegant entrance to our vineyard and the blue ocean horizon beyond. In the above photo, I have planted a climbing iceberg rose up a pillar, and added a vintage bracket ready to hold a lantern with the soft glow of a candle.
Iceberg rose is a popular floribunda rose, and it is now available in pink and burgundy. My favorite is the white. White iceberg roses are often available at retail stores and nurseries at very reasonable prices. The iceberg rose blooms non-stop all summer, is very disease-resistant, is very hardy, and has a subtle sweet rose fragrance. The iceberg rose is as beautiful as a cut flower as it is in your garden. It does best in zones 5-9, and reaches a mature height of 3-4 feet. It looks best in mass plantings, and can be a foundation for your garden.
The climbing white iceberg rose has the same wonderful attributes as the iceberg floribunda. Use it on arbors, fences, pillars, and where ever it can potentially climb. Plant white iceberg rose for romance in your garden.
