I've got Gertrude Jekyll too what a powerful perfume it has. I've trained longer stems horizontally along a fence. Claire Austin, lovely myrrh scent , Abraham Darby, an amazingly scented peachy rose, strong grower too, Graham Thomas, not a strong scent but a nice shape flower, Munstead Wood, one of my favourites, I've got two Lady Emma Hamilton's in my front garden, they're pretty special , a climbing Spirit of Freedom, The Generous Gardener, a new one this mother's day just about to bloom. I think that's all my DAs. Then I've got two striped roses, Rosa Mundi, only flowers once but beautiful and Ferdinand Pichard, it does repeat flower. Then I've got Valentine Heart, another favourite bought for a quid yonks ago, climbing Compassion, strong scent ed, Tickled Pink and finally DA Susan William Ellis in a large pot. Phew ..I bet you wish you'd never asked. I saw Bridge of Sighs on another thread and thought how stunning it was. Boscoble is a good colour I've seen it in bloom. I nearly bought Crown Princess Margarita but it grows too tall and wide for where I wanted to grow it , gorgeous colour isn't it?
