I was just looking at the Peter Beales rose catalog on line. I am sad to say that the rose they sell as 'Evangeline' is not correct. The good news is that, from the photos, it could be Walsh's 'Nokomis'.

Palustris… I'm not sure we can trust these photos from Beales these days, they could do a lot more work on updating their images with more photos really... the reason I query it is because I've stood right next to their rose 'Evangeline' in their garden, grown up a pillar, like the one you've posted at Wood's Hole, and the rose I was looking at was like this one in this link...
a single flowered pale pink rose, not the semi single shown in the latest Beales image for this rose. I've no idea what's going on there, but the rose in the photos on their website, is not the rose that I was looking at, and in awe of, as I absolutely loved it, but it was a long time ago, Mr Beales was still alive, but I do remember vividly it was a single bloom, and paler with pink edges, not that muddled pink semi double...

Should I be using the term 'go figure' here? … maybe...

That's extremely interesting. I believe they actually had the correct 'Debutante' a couple of decades ago as well. Vintage Gardens in CA used to sell the correct 'Debutante' and their catalog says that Beale was their source. So maybe they have lost these roses over the decades and are now selling roses they think are correct.

I think this comment belongs under References, but couldn't find a way to post it there.

Regarding 'Evangeline', Stephen Scanniello and Tania Bayard say, " 'Evangeline' flourishes in full sun or partial shade but like 'Crimson Rambler', it is very susceptible to mildew. Because of this, it should not be grown on a wall, for its dense foliage mildews rapidly when good air circulation is lacking." In "Climbing Roses" (First Edition, 1994), page 112. Includes photo.
