The Iceberg rose is so common in Southern California, but I like its pure white blooms anyway.
Especially because my brother had left this bush to overgrow to be even taller than me. I had to hack off basically all of its branches in order to transport it. I worried that it wouldn't revive since I had cut off so much. But sure enough it eventually grew new shoots and bloomed.
Its ubiquity is most likely because of its hardiness.
