There are three basic types of climbing roses that you can choose from
Rambling Roses, True Climbers and Trailers. Rambling climbing roses are
perhaps the most impressive in terms of growth. Several varieties of
rambling roses have extremely large blooms. True climbers are the
perfect choice for any rose lover who is looking for a climbing rose
that has extremely large blossoms. Trailing roses are an excellent
choice in climbing roses because they are extremely resistant to the
diseases that often compromise other varieties of climbing roses. For

We have a small arch in our garden, which currently has honeysuckle and
a clematis growing up it. We were considering getting a rose to climb up
it to, as we reckon that a strong stem would help secure the arch which
is not very substantial. Would somebody be able to recommend a suitable
rose? My guy likes red roses with a strong fragrance, and ideally we
would choose a rose which is attractive to pollinating insects. The arch
receives sun all day long and faces the south.

Thanks for your information. We were thinking of rose Guine (climbing
hybrid tea) or rose Etoile de Hollande (also a climbing hybrid tea) but
worried that they might overpower our little arch with the height.
