Rosa 'Crepuscule' (Rosaceae)
(RO-za KRAY-puss-ule)
Crepuscule Rose

"Crepuscule" means "twilight" in French, and its bloom color is reminiscent of the last golden light of sunset. The Noisette class of roses were developed in Charleston, SC, by John Champneys in the early to mid-1800's and are particularly suited to conditions in the Southeast. 'Crepuscule' is a short climber, spreading from 12-15' up a trellis or along a fence. Buds open to reveal small, intoxicatingly fragrant apricot blooms. This rose is somewhat tender, place carefully when planting in colder parts of its range. An uncommon and highly regarded rose.
