  Rosa Cl. 'Iceberg' - White climber (1968)
 
Rosa Cl. Iceberg
Rosa Cl. 'Iceberg' planted in the San Marcos Growers garden.
 
This climber or climbing floribunda was discovered in England by Cant in 1968 as a sport of the very popular R. 'Iceberg'. It has the shrub form's many good qualities with the additional elegant longer growth of a climber, reaching up to 10 feet tall with climbing shoots that are nearly thornless. Its ever present double white flowers, often with a flush of pink in spring and fall, are lightly fragrant. The flowers are medium sized in large clusters and open wide then fall cleanly from the plant. Although uncommon, it has been reported that this form can revert back to shrub form. With the vigorous growth also comes the task of an occasional hard pruning to control size and mass of branching growth. Noted by many to be one of the best Climbing Floribunda roses. Hardy to zones 4-9.
