Iceberg Floribunda Rose

I think this is an Iceberg Floribunda Rose  [Rosa Iceberg (‘Korbin’)  rose Iceberg (bush floribunda)] – at least that’s what I bought it as. It has been growing since about 2000 and flowers profusely over the summer months with a perfect rose fragrance. It’s making a grand last stand for blossoming. It’s buds appear as a gentle pink and explode the next day into these bleached-white voluptuous petticoats of roses. They are short-lived as individuals, but there are so many and for so long, it seems to be ever blooming during the summer. It has wicked thorns and will spread if allowed. I have it planted with a red weigela and it is quite beautiful when both bloom simultaneously. Iceberg Floribunda is described as disease resistant – although, the Japanese beetles do like it – and hardy to grow in MN.
