Features:

This variety rebels against the idea that roses are hard to grow!  No spraying, no deadheading, just lots of flowers all season long!

Similar to 'Peace' in its coloration, Italian Ice's orange buds open to soft yellow flowers melting into pink blushed margins. The soft flower color is set off nicely by its dark green, glossy foliage. Flowers are semi-doubled, with 24-30 petals per bloom. This self-cleaning rose has excellent disease-resistance, abundant flowers, and a nice habit, making it an excellent plant for home gardens.
