What to plant behind Drift Roses along fence?

I am thinking of planting a row of drift roses along an 8ft section of my fence. Probably about 4 of them total. It is on the West side of the house and will get about 6 hours of Sun a day from 8 am to 2 pm. The bed is 4.5 feet deep. I am looking for something to plant behind some apricot or Coral drift roses. My fence is 5ft tall. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I am fairly new to the forum but I have been looking at ways to add to my garden and I have noticed many people plant flowering vines behind their roses. I think maybe a short growing clematis would be pretty and give you some height behind the roses. It's a beautiful spot in your yard and I hope you post pics when you get it the way you want it. Good luck!

Maybe a few white lady banks climbers on the fence behind if that is what you are looking for.
If it was really me I would plant some thing that got some what taller than 5 ft. I would not like to look at the house or deck behind me or for them (deck) to be looking into my back yard. Just saying.
