OGR Cleanslate need help (photo)

I have long lusted for that which I cannot grow due to our harsh climate. Now a beloved relative has moved to the Golden Triangle of North Carolina and is looking for suggestions for a no spray, easy care, OGR feast of the senses. The area was formerly a Hybrid Tea garden complete with an irrigation system.
The stick in the garden is a yard stick.
I am known for giving bad advice.

Chinas and Teas and Noisettes. Low maintenance, low BS problems. Drought tolerant after establishment. Beautiful! Denise

Absolutely! The Noisettes were born in that region. Musks, not hybrid musks as they are primarily multiflora hybrids, but true musks; Chinas, Teas, Noisettes are all wonderful in that kind of climate and are often "found" in abandoned gardens, homesteads, old cemeteries. How can you improve on roses which thrive without you? Kim

I agree! And Kim's last comment is the telling one:

I am going to have to get out Gregg Lowery's wonderful catalog from Vintage and drool all over it again.
Do you have any Favorites?
Some of the Noisettes look like they get pretty large!
Are there any gardens in driving range where they can view some of these varieties?
