This rose is used for many purposes here in southern California. Our apartment complex grows them in rows in spots that get 15 minutes of sun -- and they thrive! It's a beautiful, easy rose in my garden: always in bloom, not fussy, each bud a beauty, each rose perfect. It climbs & is easily trained. And the scent reminds me why I grow roses!

Noted by Antique Rose Emporium:
"Peter Harkness describes this rose as "one of the most popular and widely admired roses, and certainly the best known white Floribunda." ‘Iceberg’s’ lovely- shaped, clustered blooms of white may appear light pink in the cooler months and are wonderful for cutting. The bush is well rounded and is used frequently for hedging. After witnessing this rose’s performance in the garden, we can understand why it is a design staple."
