Iceberg Rose

Roses grown in Fortuniana stock are best suited for Florida.

I have never been a big fan of roses (I thought them to be the uppity, high-maintenance cousin), but something took over me when I found this one in the sale bins at Lowes. It takes a bit more maintenance than any of the other plants in the garden, but it is worth it.

Other than black spot, which I treat with regular applications of diluted neem oil, I have had no issues with it and it is starting to bloom like crazy.
