Rose 3ft Standard - Ebb Tide (PBR) 250mm Pot (VN)

Description of plant at maturity:
So mysterious in its colour and so powerfully perfumed, its certain to attract attention. Dusky deep purple, some say black, buds swirl open to very doubled old-fashioned flowers of velvet plum washed with a haze of sultry smoke. The intense clove fragrance can nearly bowl you over. But keep your balance or you''ll find yourself face down amongst the deep green leaves. Great disease resistance.

Prefers an open, sunny position in organic, rich, well drained soils. Improve soil by incorporating organic matter and improve poorly drained soil by raising garden beds.

Planting potted roses:
Remove the pot gently without pulling on the plant. Do not tease the roots unless they are tightly packed or spiraling. Position the plant in the hole to the same soil level as found in the pot. Water in thoroughly. Do not place any fertiliser in or around the hole at this time; wait until new growth appears.

Planting bare root roses:
Remove the plant from its bag or covering. Where roots have been confined, gently move them back into a more outward direction. Trim back any broken or long roots using sharp secateurs. Dig a hole as deep as the roots and wider. Water the hole prior to planting. Do not place fertiliser in or around the hole when planting; wait until new growth appears. Plant your rose so the bud union is 3-5cm above the soil level. Backfill around the roots. Firm the soil gently and water in well.

Remove spent flowers and dead wood as they occur. Pruning is best performed during July when the rose is dormant.

Bush, Hybrid Tea and Floribundas can be planted about 60-90cm apart. Standards, about 1m apart. Climbers, 2-4m, depending on their vigour.
