Beautifully SimpleReview by Rachel
I planted my mini rose in a pot topped with some of the mint compost here in Northern Utah (5-6 zone), it is doing great so far. Love the color and as the bloom fades to a pale yellow/white color. Definitely only buying own root roses from now on instead of cheap store ones like in the past. I would include a photo if I could. (Posted on 5/17/2018)
gallant little rose Review by Rowena
Apricot Twist arrived in early fall and thru out the most changeable awful back and forth searing hot to ice and snow, this little rose has behaved beautifully. This past winter killed every rose in my garden except little Apricot Twist.

Now she is having to put up another gallant battle in this still changeable hot to cool wet to dry and all else in between weather, plus Black Spot and Japanese Beetles and still this morning she has four blooms opening up, and more buds on the way. This is a beautiful strong and prolific flowerer even in the most adverse conditions. I am in love with this beautiful little mini rose.

Beautiful color and shapeReview by Cathy
I love the color and the shape of Apricot Twist. It flourishes in the not-so-good soil in my area. Continuously blooming throughout the growing season. Lots of compliment from my neighbors. This should be every miniature rose lovers' must have. (Posted on 5/26/2017)
Cutie!Review by Gail
Such a cute little rose. This is it's 2 nd summer in my garden and it has buds on it already and i am a zone 5. It is all bushed out and ready to put on a show! (Posted on 5/4/2017)
Absolute perfectionReview by Sean
I'm a huge fan of apricot roses and miniatures so I'm a little biased towards this gem of a variety. But as a professional rose grower I can put that aside and judge Apricot Twist on its merits compared to other roses. The beautiful dark green foliage is well proportioned and very healthy, minimal spraying keeps it absolutely perfectly clean in super-humid subtropical NC. And the blooms are magnificent. The delicate color holds even in awful heat and the blooms typically last about a week on the bush. And yes, they are very fragrant for a miniature! I have a pretty sensitive nose so others might be disappointed but any fragrance at all on a mini is well appreciated. One other really good quality I like about this rose is the cold hardiness - something most apricot roses tragically lack. I left my bush in a plastic nursery pot all winter to really put it through the ringer and see how tough it is (legendary toughness if you read enough about it online) and it lived up to the hype. No cold damage despite some pretty nasty cold spells this year - but here in zone 7 I can't really speak for HOW hardy it is. But seeing how easily it sailed through our winter I would assume it is good to at least 5 if not lower with some damage expected if not protected. (Posted on 2/22/2016)
