Lovely! Do you have Simplicity too? Here it's sold as 'pink Iceberg'. It has sort of the same shape and flowering habit. Lovely light baby pink.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood.

Herma - I took a pic of simplicity and white iceberg together - it  does look like iceberg, doesn't it - but doesn't have the sort of hand-painted look of the brilliant pink.

Somehow I missed this lovely picture of the pink and white roses together.  :love:

Looking back at the pix of Brilliant Pink Iceberg I cannot help but feel that Simplicity is more Iceberg than the latter owing to the same shape and size.

My Iceberg is starting to bud and seeing you are about a fortnight in front yours must be nearly at bloom time  ???

I only have the white one, unfortunately the buds are covered with aphids.

No Abby - the first buds are still tiny little pea sized things.  I have seen other roses in bloom around here but no icebergs yet.

These opened up during the weekend's heat - and yes, Abby, there are also a few aphids....

 :clap: Looking good Rena but meant to ask you ???
Are the pink and burgandy icebergs as prolific with the blooms as the white iceberg  ???
Are they fragrant  ???

Abby - the burgundy one is just as prolific  but her pink sister, although she is beautiful,  seems a little slower on the uptake....... but her flowers are so stunning, each one is different to the bloom next to it.  I saw a display of standard icebergs yesterday - a row of one white one burgundy one pink repeated along a driveway (damn - didn't have the camera....) and it was so stunning, but somehow the the pink one stood out as the winner.  They have the same perfume as the whites.
