Hi,

Do you know why my roses petal keep dropping? Sad
My previous owner owns these roses and I am not sure what is the name of this rose. There are a lot of thorns. That will be great if someone can tell me the name of the rose.

Thanks

Jas

I don't know the name of your rose, but all roses drop their petals when the blooms become old. That is such a lovely bush; I wish they could last forever too.

Beautiful rose and totally healthy looking. The older blooms naturally drop their petals.

As a helpful bit of additional info for you, not "alll" roses drop their petals when the blooms are spent, but probably most of them do.
Some turn brown and remain intact and you don't have petals all over the place...thus making deadheading quicker and easier.
Some shatter faster than others, while others may last a week before shattering.

Hi all,

Thanks for your information.
I wish it could last longer to enjoy the beauty of the rose.

If it's a repeat bloomer new buds will form. : 00 One advantage of having the petals drop of cleanly is that you don't have wads of spent blooms looking like so much TP. This is especially troublesome in areas with alot of rain.

You're in California and Iceberg is a very popular rose there. Yours could be Iceberg.

It should be fairly easy care and healthy.

Yes, Paul's pictures look a lot like the rose in question.

The leaves even look like Iceberg. I have it. And it blooms in big clusters like that too. Mine doesn't have a very strong scent. Does yours?
