deep purple rose



  • Claire, just put your email into here and they will tell you when it is back in stock.
    Thank you so much! I was looking for this rose for a long time and had almost given up. I didn’t understand why such a stunning rose had been discontinued.

    I have Ebb Tide. It's a glorious colour in real life as well as on a computer screen. Think mine came from CK Jones 

    ETA: sorry, just realised it's a zombie thread.
    No apology needed, I'm sure I'm not alone in enjoying reading this thread back again. Some fabulous roses and useful info.

    Thanks, woodgreen.😊 I think this is my Ebb Tide last year (although I think this looks a bit more magenta than real life).  Moved it to a pot since and eagerly waiting for its many buds to open.  Actually... this might be a different rose, as it looks so different from youse guys's.

    Claire, totally sympathise, I also hanker after The Prince. I think Trevor White only just started stocking it.

    The Prince is stunning, yes.  I'm glad it's been stocked again. That might be down to @Marlorena :D

    Sorry @clairemcconwayvQl8fkdq no can do, it’s still against UK plant import rules designed to prevent the importation of pests and diseases and I couldn’t provide the necessary phytosanitary cert. For example, I have species of rose slugs that the UK currently does not have and I couldn’t guarantee the material is clean of eggs, aside from it being illegal. It really is a bad idea to bring in any unauthorised plant material into the UK, imagine if you smuggled in an olive tree cutting from a tree that had xylella! I think you are going to have to be patient a while longer and wait for one from TW!
