Hello there, I live in the high desert in California and have seen many white Iceland roses here.  Lowe's in my area carries them in a one gallon size for $9.97.

Hi Stella



We grow this lovely climber in the UK and is known as Iceberg Rose rather than Iceland.  It is available from a couple of stores but I do not know whether it can be imported into the US.

Perhaps you can make some enquiries.

Expertise

Since I work with roses professionally and as a hobby, I am comfortable answering most rose growing/ culture questions. I am knowledgeable in both issues most rose growers face: to spray or not to spray roses. I am familiar with all insect and diseases that can afflict roses. If there is any question that I may not be comfortable with, it would be roses grown in extreme cold climates.

Experience

My experience involves 12 years plus of growing roses for both a city-owned rose garden (approx. 4,800 plants) as well as a home rose garden (approx 200 plants). This includes daily maintenance and care to keep these plants doing what they are bred to do- produce roses. Besides being in the garden, I lecture to different rose societies about choosing the correct roses to grow in their area and general information about rose care. Most of my lectures are in the Southeast but I will be speaking at the American Rose Society’s convention in Los Angeles this October. I even go to schools to talk to students about the scientific process of hybridizing roses in hopes of getting them interested in roses and gardening in general.

Organizations
I belong to the American Rose Society, the Carolina District Rose Society, and the South Carolina Rose Society. I am Co-Editor of ARS Kidz n Roses newsletter. I also serve on the American Rose Society Board of Directors and the ARS Audit Committee.

Education/Credentials
I received a Bachelors of Landscape Architecture from Louisiana State University in 1991.

Awards and Honors
I have been elected to the following offices: President of the South Carolina Rose Society (2009-2011), Carolina District Director (2009- current) and 2nd. Vice President for the Augusta Rose Society (2008-2009).
