How to plant a Bare Root Rose

This means that you can get very good quality 3ft Standard Iceberg roses for less than you would normally pay in other seasons, because they are sold bare rooted without the associated cost of the pot, soil and its weight in transport.

If you’ve landed here outside of winter, chances are the 3ft Standard Iceberg rose is not available bare rooted, and you will need to purchase one in a pot. Don’t worry, we buy these in bulk and often have them on special when possible.

Why are 3ft Standard Icebergs the most popular bare rooted roses?

The “Iceberg” rose variety: #1 in Australia

Reason number one it probably simply that they’re just, well, “Icebergs”, as we call them around the nursery. Iceberg roses are a white member of the floribunda rose family, and in latin that means “many flowers”. As this name suggests, they have a long flowering season, up to 8 months of the year, and put out masses of flowers.

The Iceberg rose “rose to fame” (get it) ahead of all the other floribunda roses on the market to nab the top spot as Australia’s best selling rose over the last two decades. That’s because of 3 impressive benefits:

  • Iceberg roses are low maintenance and resistant to black spot, the most common and annoying rose problem
  • Iceberg roses don’t have any thorns
  • Iceberg roses are a lovely bright white, fitting in with almost all garden styles and colour schemes

One drawback about Iceberg roses is that they don’t have much of a scent at all.

The fantastic versatility of a 3ft standard rose when you’re buying bare root

Iceberg roses come in a variety of shapes: a bush form, a standard form (as is the 3ft Standard Bare Rooted Iceberg rose), and even a climbing rose.

Standard roses grow in a “ball on a stick shape”, and their main stem never gets any taller than the height you buy them at. With only their bushy head growing larger and denser, they will never really get out of control and can be easily maintained to a neat shape and manageable size. That’s why we mostly sell standard roses during the bare rooted season.

The second factor in the popularity of a 3ft Standard Bare Rooted Iceberg rose is that 3 foot (roughly 1 metre) is the most popular size of standard roses. This is a very useful and aesthetically pleasing height for a standard rose that works really well in a variety of garden settings. It’s not too tall so that it requires a real heavy duty stake and protection from wind/exposure, and not so short that it can be engulfed by plants planted underneath it.

One of the big uses of bare rooted 3ft standard iceberg roses is in a bed or row with other plants growing underneath it, using a layered effect called underplanting. Their height makes them ideal for planting with other plants, such as low Border & Edging plants.
