Ebb Tide Rose
Let your passion for beauty burn bright with this deep, dark purple Rose! The Ebb Tide™ Rose (Rosa ‘WEKsmopur’) is a sultry, fragrant Floribunda charmer! The intense fragrance of the Ebb Tide™ Rose spices up the summer nights! Each bloom opens into a study in symmetry, the mystery of Nature at its finest. You’ll love how the red and blue tones blend perfectly into a bold, signature color of sangria.
Highlighted with a yellow center when all these petals fully unfurl, Ebb Tide™ takes things one step further by reblooming all season long! The gorgeous and glossy green foliage really sets the stage for these season-long blooms! The Ebb Tide Rose has you covered with its capability of being fiercely disease resistant!
You’ll feel clever, bringing in cuttings of the very double, old-fashioned dark plum purple blooms with 35 petals apiece to arrange in your favorite vase. You’ll love how they uplift the room with their delightfully decadent good looks and scent!
These deep purple colored Roses will vary greatly depending upon the phone, camera, laptop or PC that you are viewing them on! Variation may occur depending on the time of year the blooms develop (hot or cooler temperatures during bud formation). Additionally, as the flower first unfurls it will change in color and shade, and change again as it ages, typically fading before they finish.
These dark-colored Roses can show some lighter pink outer petals on newly planted Roses but know they will develop the more typical dark and fragrant blooms after they get nicely rooted in their new home! Hardy throughout USDA growing zones 5 to 9, this fast-growing Floribunda Rose bush fits about anywhere, in any sized garden or landscape since it grows to a neat and tidy 2-3 feet in height and width!
Just imagine yourself laying across an elegant chaise longue on a covered gallery porch, savoring the incredible clove fragrance of the Ebb Tide™ Rose! Fill large containers with these space-saving fragrant blooms, with Creeping Jenny or Creeping Thyme spilling out all around their base like a skirt. Use these planters around your front porch, patio or back deck for a high-styled display. Seating areas and garden benches anywhere in the sun take on an elevated mystery!
Sized perfectly for any sized yard, or courtyard and for low hedges and property definition, Ebb Tide™ tucks in among other Roses, flowering shrubs, and perennials alike without overcrowding. Enhance any garden bed or border with one or more of these elegant blooms! Line a driveway, a narrow pathway, or line both sides of the stairs leading to your front door for a huge curb appeal (and mood) booster!
Want to kick things up a notch? Create a garden vignette by planting an allée of Ebb Tide™ Rose bushes around a garden nook, destination spot, or garden bench and then plant the matching Ebb Tide™ Rose Tree at intervals for a multi-level plum-purple display! Imagine the butterflies and bees (and Hummingbirds!) that will make your garden their new home!
Note that this Floribunda Rose will need to be planted in full sun with regular fertility to produce nice strong stems, those loads of full flowers which return all summer, and for this Rose to exhibit that deep dark color. Plant in enriched, highly-organic, well-drained soil and give this Rose a steady supply of moisture access, especially during the hot months. Further support the almost continuous blooming of this Rose with regular applications of good, organic Rose food.
Surrounding the root system with 3-4 inches of arborist mulch not only makes the deep colors emerge beyond their potential but also ensures that it is provided with enough consistent soil moisture to allow for the healthiest growth.
