Icecap™ displays a dense flush of pure white flowers on a compact, rounded shrub. Excellent repeat-blooming and resistance to many common rose diseases such as black spot, mildew and rust. Icecap™ is the first introduction created from the combined breeding efforts of Will Radler and Meilland International. Will Radler is the creator of The Knock Out® Rose and Meilland has been breeding outstanding roses for decades.
The rose grows in a bushy habit to around 2 1/2′ high. This makes it ideal for the front of the border, for mass planting and particularly for containers. It’s hardy to zone 5.
The single petaled blooms have a charm of their own and it’s hardy to zone 5.
Climbing Eden has proven itself as a classic among climbing roses and with Pretty In Pink Eden® we have another choice in color. Hardy to zone 5
Size is around 3’x4′ making it great for borders, mass planting and even large containers like half whisky barrels. Hardy to zone 5.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts it takes around 8-10 years from the time a rose is bred to the time it gets into garden centers. Now that we are some 15 years on from the introduction of The Knock Out® Rose we are being rewarded with some terrific roses that are not only great for the garden, but are beautiful in their right.
