Climbing rose suggestions?
I'm putting in an order with heirloomroses.com and looking for some suggestions. We just put in a new fence which I'd like to turn into a support for climbing roses. It's a black aluminum 5-foot fence which goes round our pool, so I figure I can train canes to it very nicely.
The one thing I don't want, however, is a giant frumpy shrub with a fence in the middle of it. :-)
In other words, I'm looking for climbers that can be trained up and along the fence, but don't grow very wide. Fragrance would be nice too. We are in zone 5 (central MA).
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
