Anyone has Belle de Crecy or Hippolyte?

Rose Lai (9b)
last month

I am a big fan of mauve roses. Palatine will be offering the gallica roses Hippolyte and Belle de Crecy in December. Does anyone has either or both? I am interested to hear how well they do for you, in particular their tolerance of part-sun and their size. I have a spot with approximately 4 hours of morning sun in the spring/summer. I wonder if they are reasonable choices for my micro-climate in the SF Bay which has very moderate winter and summer as well (rare days over 90 degree F).
