Rosa x ‘Iceberg’ 'Iceberg' Floribunda Rose


Ruler icon up to 5 ft. high & wide

Sun icon Full sun

Thermometer icon USDA zones 6-10

Floriferous floribunda rose with virtually no thorns. ‘Iceberg’ rose has been gracing gardens since 1958 and remains one of the most popular, and durable blooming roses tolerant of high heat. These thornless shrubs are covered with emerald green, glossy disease resistant foliage. They have tight buds that unfurl to 2-3 in. wide, pure white to a white blend flowers in a clustered form. Plants are long blooming with a shrubby, upright growth habit that make them ideal for informal hedge, border plants, container gardens on patios or near the pool. They are one of the best and easiest roses to cultivate being named as “one of the world’s top ten favorite roses” by the World Rose Society Federation. Regular annual pruning when dormant, fertilizing spring into summer, and consistent watering, especially during hottest summer months keeps them growing well, looking good and full of blooms.

Cereus forbesii ‘Spiralis’ "Twisted Cactus"


Ruler icon 5-6 ft. High and Wide

Sun icon Full to Partial Sun

Thermometer icon USDA 9-11

This captivating cactus demands a second glance. No other species in the cacti family has this unique growth pattern. Its twisting, swirling bright green columns, delicately accented with small spines, create an illusion of motion in any garden – hence its fitting moniker, the ‘Twisted Cactus.’ Originating from Brazil, modern hybridization has refined this species, revealing echoes of its lineage from the Cereus peruvianus cacti. Mirroring its parent’s candelabra-like growth, it can reach heights of 5-6 feet under ideal conditions. Come late spring, it unfurls spectacular white blossoms tinged with pink. Resilient by nature, this species thrives in full or partial sun and is drought-tolerant once established. Monthly deep watering from May to August is ample, but shield it from temperatures dropping below 28°F in the winter.
