I planted this bare root in January, and it has taken off. Fantastic addition to the rose garden! It started blooming after just a few months in nice clusters, and it's been going pretty consistently, with decent color, despite a scorchingly-hot and dry summer. The scent is spicy and intoxicating--I love it! So far it's been a vigorous grower (medium-tall and bushy), disease-resistant (can't say that for all of my roses), heat-tolerant, and a prolific bloomer. Two thumbs up!

This is my first year with Twilight Zone and I am very impressed. It's blooms are strong, deep color, and so very fragrant. It has bunches of blooms and keeps making more beautiful flowers. I live in the Chicago area so I had to amend our clay "soil" and the rose is thriving. It has yet to get through one of our winters, but I am confident with proper care it will thrive. I believe the hybridization that was done gave this rose the hardiness and beauty which I see today. Ebb Tide was one of the parents.

Just planted this rose this spring. It is doing very nicely. Already putting out big fat very fragrant blooms. The color is not as deeply purple as pictured in ads, but is close. I have it planted next to a Julia Child. The combination is stunning.
