A romantic show-stopper when in full bloom, this noisette climbing rose will straddle any frame, reaching up to 4 metres with ease. Flowers in either singular or in clusters of three to five and has a strong sweet scent. ‘Crepuscule’ is a near thornless rose with striking rich dark green leaves that emerge as a lovely crimson. This is a great all-rounder which can be grown as a shrub rose or a slow-growing climber. NOISETTE, C.1904.
Plant in an open, sunny position (at least 5-6 hours of direct sunlight each day), in free-draining, neutral soil that is rich in organic matter. Water deeply to encourage strong roots when establishing and provide supplementary watering during dry periods. Roses are heavy feeders and will benefit from organic fertiliser, twice-yearly in heavy soils (spring and late summer) or four times in sandy soil. Deadhead regularly for repeat flowering. Prune in late-winter for size and shape, leaving new long canes to produce next season's flowers. Tie or fan canes into position.
