An excellent choice for a no-spray, low-growing shrub

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

In California, I get no disease on this rose, and I never spray. A colleague in Texas says that, there, it gets cyclospor under no-spray conditions. Italian Ice produces unique little pinky-yellow roses on a vigorous plant with glossy foliage. The plant, alas, sends out anomolous long shoots, which hurts its otherwise nice rounded habit. That all said, it's a superior rose. Worth a try.

Lovely color and great value

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

This rose is wonderful. Its leaves are a dark green and very shiny. The roses, which are many, are beautiful. Nothing is bothering this rose. I have it growing in a big pot on my deck here on the Oregon Coast. So many compliments on it.
