Bio, if I were you, I'd decide on colour, height, fragrance first.
All the rose suppliers are eager to sell to you and they will give you all the helpful advice needed.
Once you decide, then unless you have definite idea's, the rose world is open for exploration.
I know from experience that it can take months to decide on the perfect rose for the perfect spot. Even then I have had to move them as I didn't do enough research in the first place.
Take your time, and visit all the rose supplier websites, from the costly to the less expensive.
Half the fun of gardening is in the research and then making and correcting the mistakes we make.
I wish you luck and lots of fun.
