Pretty Iceberg Roses

I have a favourite spot in the rose garden at Dunedin Botanic Gardens. I really love the coloured iceberg roses. Dunedin, New Zealand. Photos taken by Liz 08 Dec 2019.

A climbing rose, looking pretty above the iceberg rose blooms. The signs were a bit confusing but I think the pink and white iceberg roses are ‘Burgundy Iceberg’.

There was also a sign for ‘Brilliant Pink Iceberg’. Pretty sure this refers to a smaller bush of which you can see a single bloom bottom-foreground in the next photo.

    1. There’s always something different to see at these gardens! My earnest desire is that you can make good on your longing. You’d definitely love the South Island.. and when you come, make it for as long as you possibly can.
