Climbing Iceberg has a little help from Queen Elizabeth. At least that's what I think this lovely pink rose is. I started it from a cutting many years ago that a friend had on her place when she moved there. I've read that Queen Elizabeth was a popular rose that many settlers apparently brought with them to Oregon from points east.
