A Very particular rose

Busy Lizzie, can i not trim to keep the size of the Lykkefund down, or would this compromise its health?

Thanks for all your responses

Ive looked through many of the suggestions and ended up with something! I'm inclined towards a Lykkefund Multiflora, although its described as a rambler I am presuming it can be trained upwards,  the scent appears to be strong, its hardy, the flowers are the right size (small) and I like the colour.

Would anyone have any experience or opinion on this Rose.

I looked at the Zephirine Drouhin, but indeed the flowers are larger than I would like.

Many thanks again. Daniel

First time user and (very) amateur gardner looking for advice.

I'm looking for suggestions for a climbing rose or rose type for a free standing frame (2m high) in my south facing garden. After searching various mediums I appear to be looking for the impossible;

A relatively fast climbing rose, minimally thorny, evergreen and very fragrant. I also prefer smaller flower heads!

Suggestions would be welcomed. Many thanks
