This is the best yellow rose I have. In the hot, humid Houston area, Gold Medal suffered dieback and eventually got shovel-pruned. New Day - died. Climbing Gold Badge - only blooms well in the spring, as well as Graham Thomas. Winter Sunset only bloomed in the spring. Yellow Maman Cochet and Rosette Delizy is blooming pretty good. The only other dependable yellow rose in the heat of the summer is Buff Beauty. It just keeps blooming when most of the other roses have taken a time-out due to the heat. I plan on buying more of her. Buff Beauty makes a good cut flower and the scent is wonderful. Her foliage is beautiful and the way her canes gracefully arch under the weight of the blooms is lovely.

May 2011, if you are looking for a tough Yeller Climber, try ~ ROYAL GOLD ~. It can take the heat and the roses are heavily scented here in Silicon Valley. It throws out monster canes that in this area need to be cut back; this climber reached 17 ft in its 3rd year! I rate it almost as prolific in cane output, as the red climber, SYMPATHIE.

I was wondering if this rose is very disease resistant - especially to blackspot? Also - does this rose bloom a lot like Carefree Beauty its parent or more like a Hybrid Tea? Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

I can't answer your question. My garden doesn't offer conditions favorable to Black Spot. I would guess Naga Belle to be much better than average in terms of disease resistance based on it's lineage. It blooms more like a HT.

Naga Belle shows excellent resistance to Black Spot. I live in a very hot and humid section of North Carolina. I do not spray and Naga Belle thrives and has frequent flushes of beautiful, deep pink hybrid tea shaped blooms that last well on plant and in the vase. She blooms more than any other rose in my garden which consists mostly of G. Buck roses and a few tea roses.

Great information. Thanks for this.

It's true. I have several roses with blackspot, some have it badly, but Naga Belle has *zero* blackspot!!!! I think this rose is very disease resistant.

Is this rose shade tolerant? I have a position with 4 hours of sun a day, and the rest of the day with filtered sun. Thanks.

Hi Charlene,

I checked three different rose books that go to some trouble to try to identify those roses that can do reasonably well in shade. None of them mention 'Crépuscule' for any degree of shade tolerance, and one book, the Peter Beales' "Classic Roses" book, specifically recommends that you be put it into full sun.

There are plenty of roses that Peter Beales doesn't mention any sun/shade information on; he singled this one out for needing sun to do its best. So perhaps Peter knows of some very unsuccessful attempts to grow the rose in partial shade? The books do list some noisettes that can succeed with some shade, but apparently this rose just isn't one of them. Sorry.

Best wishes,

Just a note ... full sun in England is very different than full sun in Texas or even parts of California. It's likely the rose will "reach for the sun", but I have found that many roses said to require full sun by authors from England fry to a crisp in the mountains of northern California unless they have some shade or filtered sunlight.

How true. I live a half an hour from the beach, but most of my roses appreciate a little shade at some point in the day. The ideal spot here faces east, towards the morning sun, then gets shade in the afternoon hours.

Here's a photo of Crepuscule in a previous garden of mine. In a 3m wide corridor between the (one-story) house and a colourbond fence, facing east, and subject to howling salt-laden winds at times. Zone 9b, summers hot to very hot.

Mine grows in similar conditions and blooms well. I live in the Bay Area, Ca.
