Rose: “Ebb Tide” (first flush)

Ebb Tide is a dark purple rose, y'all, but did you know the first flush is often magenta, like you see above? It's waiting for the warmer weather to give us the deep purple blooms, so I'll be photographing her again this summer because magenta is just not what I'm used to. Funny though, I've grown this at my first house as well as on the farm and never had the magenta in the first blooms this striking, so it was definitely a surprise to learn! I mean, she's okayyyy like this, but when you see the dark purple up close, you're kind of blown away at how crazy gorgeous it is, and with the clove scent? It's impossible to resist.
