Which one? Any suggestions on roses of similar color on their own roots?

Been researching. Now I want all three. Thanks for the tip Mauve!

Twilight Zone has received more favorable reviews here due to less fade in summer temps. I saw both this May at a municipal garden and only the slightly larger flowers on Twilight distinguished it from Ebb Tide. But they photographed differently!

The Prince is one tick towards purple from WS2000. It's still red, not purple. TZ, ET, and MB are truer towards purple along with Night Owl.

I dug through my archives for these bouquets I did for serena with WS2000/TP and some purple/white dahlias

These are pretty true to color.......

I own all three and prefer the color of Ebb Tide. Twilight Zone is a better all around rose bush. The leaves are healthier and it is a stronger grower...in my garden. The Prince just isn't what I would consider purple, but it is a dark red, in my yard. Maybe it will change as it matures, or during the Fall.

All three are fragrant.

Thank you all for the help and the pictures. I'm leaning toward getting both Twilight Zone and Ebb Tide. I used to have Midnight Blue but my husband made me move it in the summer and it didn't get enough water. I want something with a fuller blossom than that. I might polk around for a bright orange or bright yellow rose as well. I would prefer to have own root. I see Heirloom has both Ebb Tide and Twilight zone own root.
