One could assume that there are perhaps two or more scion banks for this climbing version of Iceberg. The number of petals is distinctly lower with Iceberg, Cl than with the shrub version. Also, the fragrance is somewhat different and diminished from the climber. However, the fragrance of honey is still present. Sets occasional heps. 16-20 petals. Still classy and a free blooming specimen as it’s clone parent. Does suffer from some black spot when water sets on the foliage.

Does anyone have experience or photos about climbing iceberg roses left to grow freely without support, like a big bush?

Have a look at Photo Id: 107727 I don't know whether it was a bush or climbing form.

Helllo Margaret thanks for the photo ! Absolutely gorgeous... Comparing it with the size of the weeping willow beside it seems a bit high for a standard iceberg, don't you think? Thanks again Alessia

Who was the patent eventually issued to? Joseph Timmerman, or Cants of Colchester. Refer 1970 reference.

I had one plant from so many years ago it wasn't on my list. I started keeping a detailed list in 2002 of where I bought each rose, where I planted it, etc. The old climber died over the bitter winter of 2003 or 2004. I replaced it in 2007. This one is so tall I have to get on a ladder to train it to the arbor. I also had to buy a 7 foot long catch and hold pruner. I'm not sure if it's the newer product I starred using in 2010 or what. This is one of the most beautiful roses in my garden and I have 212 to choose from. When it blooms, it's absolutely beautiful.
It's one of the best climbers there is but give it plenty of room.
