Twiggys rose

Twiggy visited BBC Gardeners’ World Live at The NEC for the official naming of ‘Twiggy’s Rose’. Roses UK, representing British Rose Breeders and Growers and Harkness Roses are delighted to name this brand new rose for Twiggy in celebration of her 60th birthday.
Twiggy’s Rose’ which is bred by Harkness Roses, is a robust, well-branched bush rose, technically a floribunda, which simply means that it carries its flowers in clusters of blooms per stem. These are clusters to reckon with, they often form massive canopies of blooms, as many as two dozen per branch was not unusual during trials of the rose. The branches are stiff and sturdy, well capable of bearing the weight of such a vast crop of blooms.
Twiggy told The Landscaper: "I was delighted and honoured when Marilyn at Roses UK contacted me proposing to name a rose after me for my birthday . I adore roses, especially fragrant ones and have some beauties in my garden. It was great fun to help choose the colour, shape and fragrance."
