‘Twilight Zone’ is an eye-catching Floribunda rose bred by Tom Carruth at Weeks Roses in the USA, introduced onto the market in 2012.
This beautiful, rich deep mauve rose has velvet-like petals – a uniquely coloured rose. Twilight Zone features large, fully double, old-fashioned blooms (each with 80 – 100 petals) which are borne either solitary or in small clusters of up to 5 per stem. Apart from its extraordinary colour, the strong, spicy clove and lemon citrus fragrance is most attractive.
Twilight Zone is a sturdy, well-proportioned bush growing 1.25m tall and 1.25m wide with tough, deep green, disease resistant foliage.
Deadheading often is recommended to encourage faster repeat flowering throughout the growing season.
This highly recommended rose performs well in every season and suits our climate. It can be used for beds, borders, a container rose or as a cut flower.
This rose is available as a bush or a standard rose from Knight’s Roses, Wagner’s Rose Nursery, Swane’s Nurseries and rosesalesonline.com.au
