One of the most striking miniature
roses, Twister roses are like snowflakes; no two are ever the
same but they are all amazing. Originally called a climbing rose, it
doesn't really climb. It is just tall for a miniature rose. That just
makes it better because the bigger it grows the more perfect little
roses it makes.
Like all roses, miniature roses are sun loving and fairly
drought resistant. Plant in well drained soil and fertilize with an
organic fertilizer in the
spring. We prune out dead canes whenever we notice them and shape the
plant to the height and width we want in fall. All rose petals are
edible if grown organically and make attractive garnishes for salads.
They can be added after cooking to almost any dish. Whole buds can be
used to decorate cakes or other confections. Sample buds should be
pulled apart and inspected for insects before using on food.
