I've had my "Ebb Tide" in the garden for a few seasons now. It's not a spectacular performer, but I also haven't treated it with anything or fertilized it very often (it fills a space in a corner). When it does bloom, the flowers are rather small but they have the most gorgeous, velvety purple-crimson color that really is unmatched in other varieties, and the scent is gentle and lovely. I'd recommend it for anyone wanting a true rainbow of roses in their garden.
