Bred by Tom Carruth, USA, 2004 this wonderful rose created a massive impact for the intense colour and fragrance which was rarely seen in modern roses. This very free-flowering rose bears flowers in small clusters with an amazingly intense clove fragrance throughout the flowering season.

Ebb Tide has the most beautiful medium sized, glossy and dark green foliage which is highly disease resistant. The bushy growth is around 90cms in height with flowers all over the shrub.

This delightful addition to the rose garden should be planted at the forward edge of the garden or somebody will step all over the garden to visit with this little beauty!

  • Extremely intense clove fragrance
  • Intense and exotic smoky purple flowers
  • Clusters of flowers on short bushy rose
  • Ideal for borders at 60cm spacing

CULTURAL NOTES:

The generally sunny, dry and hot conditions of the Australian garden are particularly well suited to planting roses and roses flourish in our gardens when you take measures to provide the following:

WATER – Roses are very deep rooted plants and require one good, deep soaking at least every 10 days in hot and dry conditions.

FEED – Because roses flower throughout all but the Winter season, they should be regularly fertilized with quality (preferably organic) fertilizer which contains a balance of major nutrients (NPK) and trace elements. The fertilizer should be applied at least once a month – small amount often – with fortnightly applications of liquid seaweed over the foliage.

PRUNE – During Winter, 70% of the rose plant should be pruned and all old wood removed back to the crown and the bush pruned to shape.
During the flowering seasons, 25% of all flowering stems should be cut back after flowering to encourage strong re-growth.

MULCH – Particular attention to application of lucerne or pea straw directly around the root-zone of each rose will enhance the overall health of the rose and then the whole bed should be mulched to 75mm with any other mulch medium available.
