This rose is just partially winterhardy in our zone 6.
It froze to the ground, but came back up to 30 cm. Now it's wilting and I will replace it.
Alas, for I really like this rose!

Which means it will be just about hardy for me! (7b) :D It also is a good breeder, hint hint.

Mine died later, after one year struggling.
At a friends-place (who got this rose from me) and a little bit closer to the sea, on clay, the rose survived that bad winter with flying colours.

Well, I am sorry for your loss. I am on clay by the sea, too though. Hopefully, it will fare better for me.

Good chance it will! I really like that rose, but one can't have everything.
And good luck with Your crossings with it!

But you don't need to go through Flickr - once you've posted a message here, an Add Photo button appears on the right.

Oh, heavens, let's see if that's something I've been missing for YEARS? Yes, sorry! Thank you Margaret. I AM blind, not to mention less than observant. I honestly have never paid attention to that. Guess I should delete my "dumb post"! Thanks!

It took me a while to find it, too!
The photos look pinker than I'm used to seeing Crepuscule.

It's quite pretty! But, it looks more like Felicia to me.

you're right. It sure does look like Felicia.

The colour is close for Felicia, but Felicia usually comes in quite generous clusters/ trusses of smallish blooms and is reasonably well armed.
What is the fragrance like?
Do you know whether the colour and form of the bloom varies greatly at different times of the year?
How wide would you say the bloom is?
Does the rose set hips readily?

hi, the flowers I saw were between 2.5-3". as to fragrance, I'm not very good at describing, other than sweet or divine. This belongs to a neighbor and I'm not near the rose daily to notice characteristics more closely. In fact, this is the first time I've notice such abundance of blooms. I greatly appreciate your help and know more people can't do more, with limited info I'm providing. Only thing I can say (respectfully) for sure is that this person accepted suggestions from a reputable nursery, bought and planted. So the cultivars will be mostly mainstream. Nothing wrong w/ that, just sayin'.

I'd love to see any extra photos you take over the seasons.
Did you take these pics recently? - if yes, then these are winter blooms or the blooms-that-come-after-the-first -decent-rain-for-a-long-time!?

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,
Mary

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.

Smiles,
Lyn

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.
