Central Texas: Has set hips with abandon this year. Best color in cooler weather. In the heat, it continues to grow and produce flowers but (no surprise) the color is less intense and flowers are much smaller. Still - overall a very cheery rose to have around. Will have to wait till next year to report on seed germination.

It does spot significantly under spring pressure. Dusting with sulfur helps (i don't use anything stronger) but just keeps it at bay. I suspect it will get better in drier weather . Just glad I have wet weather to complain about this year - better than the alternative.

Between Route 66, Midnight Blue, Ebb Tide, Night Owl, and all the other new purple roses from Carruth, which one has the darkest or best color?

One of the series of Tom Carruth roses that bring the deep purple shades to modern repeat blooming roses with good disease resistance. Most of them suffer some leaf spot in my coastal climate.
