I became intrigued with Burgundy Iceberg this year when I came across it listed as a new own-root variety from Northland Rosarium.  I ran an Internet search on the rose and came up with some sumptuous photos from the Australian rose communtity, touting Burgundy Iceberg as an outstanding new variety that had already garnered major awards in its little time on the market.  Excited, I ordered two plants from Northland and put them in the ground this spring.  Both have rooted quickly and have started to branch out freely, with already a couple of flushes of bloom, in the space of only a few months.  I sense this is a very vigorous, free-branching plant, with a similar habit to parents Brilliant Pink Iceberg and the original Iceberg itself.  The relative thornlessness of this genus is a pleasure to deal with when dealing with these roses 'hands-on'.  Plus they are very generous with bloom (understatement).  They are among the healthiest in my garden too.  The coloration of this Burgundy variety is quite breathtaking.  As a mature full-size specimen, it will undoubtedly be one of the standout  varieties in my garden.
