Rose Burgundy Iceberg Floribunda
Free-flowering all summer long!
This delightful Floribunda has the beauty and fragrance of an Old Rose with the modern vigor, disease resistance, and bloom strength of a modern hybrid. Burgundy Iceberg™ is prepared to flower all summer long, filling garden and vase with a strong honey-like scent and adding rich, dark, highly unusual color to the Rose display.
Each of these blooms is fully double-flowered, with 20 to 25 petals that sport a deep pink reverse (exterior) to complement their dark burgundy interior. Measuring 3 to 4 1/2 inches wide, they arise in large clusters from late spring until the cool fall weather sets in. Very tolerant of heat and humidity, they are a superb choice for the south and southwest, but also content in shorter and cooler summer climates.
Burgundy Iceberg™ has won numerous awards in its native Australia, and we believe it will be a success here as well. This color is simply unavailable in most other Roses, and the rich fragrance and floriferousness make this shrub very valuable. Best of all, it has disease-resistant foliage, so you can plant it right into the crowded border (or in containers) without worrying about mildew and blackspot. If you have never grown a Rose before, Burgundy Iceberg™ is a splendid way to begin. If you're a seasoned Rosarian, you can count on this cultivar to be one of the highest-performing and most trouble-free varieties in your garden! Zones 5-9.

Easy as 1-2-3
Anyone can grow roses - all that's needed is a spot with 6 hours of sun a day. Roses are even well suited to container growing, so you don't have the excuse of no garden space!
Here's all there is to it!
STEP 1 - When your roses arrive, open the box immediately and soak roots in lukewarm water for 12 to 24 hours. If you can't plant them right away, you may leave them in their boxes for up to a week in a cool, dark place. Sprinkle roots with water every few days. (Please note: You can also grow roses in containers that are at least as big as a bucket.)
STEP 2 - Dig a hole about 18" deep and 24" wide. Make sure it's large enough to give the roots plenty of room to develop after planting. Loosen the soil at the bottom and sides. Build a mound in the center of the hole and set rose on top. For vigorous growth, abundant blooms and lush foliage, try adding J&P's Root Boost
STEP 3 - Fill the hole with two thirds of the remaining soil. Add water, let it soak in, then finish filling the hole. Tamp down lightly to remove air pockets and water well. Spread mulch around the plant to suppress weeds and retain moisture. Water 3-4 times a week until leaves begin to grow, weekly thereafter.
