      Thanks Pauline. Possibly the red is from pruning below the graft, but I’ve read it’s not uncommon for color sports like this occur. I confess I don’t know much about roses and am always amazed when this one blooms. Such a treat.

    There is a red sport of iceberg indeed, I think it’s called burgundy ice or something like that. My iceberg rose don’t grow and don’t flower since I moved it from my previous garden, I was thinking of sending her to the compost pile but your pretty picture made me bother… I might give her another round…

      Thanks for the info about the red sport Alberto. Maybe you should give your iceberg rose a little more time. About two years ago I had all but given mine up for dead but it revived and came back better than ever. Take care.

    Iceberg is always pretty when there is no black spots or fungus on it. Mine started out nicely early in the season then black spots have taken over. You’re lucky.

      Have to fess up–the leaves are affected with black spot. I just am not motivated to spray or whatever one does to maintain roses, so when they bloom like this I really enjoy them. Have a good day. Susie
