    Iceberg rose blooming pink this spring!

    Hi - not being at all rose-savvy, I wonder if my Iceberg roses are exhibiting signs of disease or of a nutritional need? Two-year old, super-vigorous Icebergs came with the brand-new house - no wonder the developer used them all over because they are amazing (I'm in Sacramento). This spring, after a super-hard pruning, they are in crazy full bloom, but many of the blossoms on one of the plants are distinctly pink -striped, actually. Why? not that I mind, you see, but I would like to know if there is an issue that needs attention.

    You might have a gene mutation. In that case take a picture of it and send to the Americian rose Society for evaluation. Iceburg is a grafted rose on root stock. Could be the old root stock cane growing which would produce the original roses.

    Hi Tempestt, I have a Rose Book here and it states:
    "There may be a hint of pink in cooler weather and in wet weather, pink rain spots appear."
    I hope that helps
