This rose is unique among climbers for its colour, rich apricot blending into buff yellow. Informal double flowers are borne in clusters which repeats from late October to May.
Glossy dark green leaves mass from almost thornless stems and will spread vigorously covering walls, fences, garden sheds etc. Crepuscule is one of the few roses which grows very bushy from ground up almost like a narrow hedge on a wall if trained correctly.
It was bred by Dubreuil of France in 1904.
4 metres high x 3 metres wide.
Planting, Position & Preparation
Roses require 5-6 hours of full sun per day for best performance. Roses tolerate a wide range of soil types, but your garden bed must be well drained. If your soil is lacking in quality or drainage, mix a premium potting mix or mulch or your own compost into your soil. Dig a hole approx.. 500 x 500 x 300mm deep. Plant your rose halfway up the main trunk, do not cover the graft or the trunk where branches begin. Water in well. If winter rains do not occur, water your rose every two weeks. Do not feed your rose at this time. Feed during early spring with a well-balanced slow release fertiliser.
