Since this rose is so light and airy, it would probably benefit from a solid background. Unfortunately, I don't have enough room for that. But on my to-do list is to plant something in front of it to hide its bare legs.
Some Texans won't have Iceberg in their garden. It has a tendency to get blackspot. I love it anyway.
Mine seems to drop her leaves every spring, but she grows them back quickly, and she's as good as new. I can live with that. She doesn't bloom with bare stems, and she doesn't keep ugly leaves for all to see. I have come to accept her spring leaf-dropping quirk, and she accepts my laissez faire gardening.
Iceberg rose grows in zones 5 (maybe 4) through 9 (maybe 10) and is resistant to mildew and rust. She grows to about 3 ft x 3 ft in my garden. This was one of the first roses I ever purchased, and I moved it three times before deciding to just leave it alone and let it be. I felt like she had been tortured enough!
In return, she has turned into a beautiful white, shimmering cloud on the ground.
