AS SEEN IN 'WHICH?' MAGAZINE Ebb Tide is a super compact grower and the flowers are produced in clusters. They start as deep purple buds opening to a smokey plum purple. It has a strong spicy clove fragrance. The foliage is a lovely deep green and quite large considering the plant’s size. This one will sell quickly so please order early. Bred by Tom Carruth in the USA in 2006 and introduced into the UK in 2011. Like most purple roses, the size and colour of the flowers varies with the temperature, and this rose seems to be biggest and darkest when the weather is cooler. A fantastic floribunda which can be grown in a large container or the garden.
