If secrets, especially romantic ones, are to be shared at twilight time, it is mandatory to have a tryst. The word conjures up whispers and blushes, soft words and perfume in the air. And this rose is intoxicatingly fragrant – - added to the dark purple and magenta flowers, it makes for a heady combination , perhaps leading some romantic souls to make more promises than intended!
