In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  
Breeder's notes:
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!
With our continuing penchant for alliteration, we called this rose ‘Twilight Tryst’
Notes:
Registration information that is single petaled is incorrect.
