Description

World Federation of Rose Societies Hall of Famer as a Climber

If you're looking for a long-lived, flower-happy climbing rose, look no further than Iceberg. This garden favorite has been a common sight in landscapes for years, originally in its bush form and now as a glorious blanket for fences, trellises, arbors, and walls.

Long, arching canes adorn themselves with hundreds of mildly honey-scented white blooms over a long season. Each two-inch flower has a soft pink center that accentuates the snowy white tips of the petals, and the sweet scent is most welcome on a warm summer day or in the vase. Iceberg blooms in waves, so you get weeks of color, followed by a rest, then fresh blooms. The bees won't believe their luck.

Iceberg grows to a mature size of 12 to 14 feet high and 6 feet wide, and since it flowers only on old wood, it will produce more flowers over time, increasing in beauty with each passing year. Bred in England from a German rose, you will find this climber more disease resistant and cold hardy than most others. It's made for tough weather.

One of the most versatile climbing roses, its long canes are flexible and take well to "training." It offers the same dense, attractive foliage of other varieties of Iceberg and flowers at the same time you expect other climbers to, but requires less light than many climbing roses. One of the features that many gardeners take delight in is that its canes "dance" in the wind. Even a light breeze can set them in motion, and if you have a mass planting, it's utterly gorgeous.

Tough, hardworking, and endlessly rewarding, Iceberg has proven to be tolerant of almost any treatment, even downright neglect, and still springs back beautifully. This climbing rose is sure to please.

Healthy Plants

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

These roses seem very hardy, I've only had mine for about eight weeks; but they took root very well and are growing quickly in poor soil. I've had plants arrive from other vendors that arrived in a sorry state and didn't survive. So far so good, looking forward to see them bloom.

Iceberg climber

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

I bought the Iceberg climbing rose for a semi shady spot in my garden. I had already bought a Iceberg from another source and had it planted in another semi shady spot. The climber that I received from Jackson/Perkins is the largest bareroot I have ever received and yours is now almost 3ft tall despite the rain and no sunshine right now in California. The others still look like bareroot (no leaves). I am so impressed with your roses I am ordering more. I have planted it against a brown wood fence and beside a large pink fushia which I think will be beautiful.
