The beautiful and lavishly blooming Burgundy Iceberg floribunda rose has a compact, mounded shape that seems to be covered in fragrant semi-double flowers from May to late summer. Native bees and other pollinators love this rose for its cupped, semi-double flowers and sweet nectar. Burgundy Iceberg was developed from the famous Iceberg rose and retains a creamy coloring and profusion of blooms.
Floribunda roses may be the easiest of the shrub roses to grow and enjoy in the garden. They are famous for their easy care and sprays of flowers that are almost a ready-made bouquet for the vase. Burgundy Iceberg is pest and disease resistant and tolerant of light deer browsing. Burgundy Iceberg is more tolerant of heat and humidity than most other floribunda types, making it suitable for growing in the warmer USDA zones. It will develop a deeper flower color in cooler climates. Plant one or more of these low-maintenance beauties in a mixed hedge, or add it to a dedicated rose garden design. It has a deep color and delightful fragrance.
Burgundy Iceberg Floribunda Rose Care
Shrub roses require at least 6 hours of direct sun for good blooming and deep foliage color. Plant Burgundy Iceberg in well-draining soil with a pH close to neutral. Average soil texture is acceptable, although a rich loam is preferred. Water the shrubs well for the first few years to establish a deep root system. Supplemental watering will be needed during extended periods of heat or drought. Mulch the root zone annually to help the soil retain moisture longer and to suppress weeds during the growing season.
Burgundy Iceberg is grown on its own rootstock, making it very hardy down to USDA growing zone 5. Perform any structural pruning in late winter when the shrub is dormant. Remove damaged, diseased, diagonally crossing, or dying stems to prepare the plant for new growth. Harsh winters may cause the top growth to die back. If necessary, the shrub can be cut back hard (rejuvenation pruning) early in the spring. Deadheading is not necessary for this self-cleaning rose, although cutting stems for arrangements will keep the growth compact,
Fertilize shrub roses with a slow-release formulation for flowering landscape shrubs in the early spring. Non-stop bloomers like Burgundy Iceberg will appreciate another application of fertilizer in midsummer to support blooming late in the fall.
Burgundy Iceberg Floribunda Rose Spacing
Burgundy Iceberg floribunda roses will reach 2-4 feet tall and wide at maturity, making them suitable for small garden spaces. Space plants 30 inches apart when planting multiple roses for a dense hedge or with other plants in the garden.
