I have a couple of red ones chosen for not being too large

Rose ‘Crimson Showers’ (Rambler) –H-Up to 15ft x S 8ft

Trusses of bright crimson, pom-pom like lightly scented flowers against dark shiny foliage. Starts flowering in May and continues into September


Rose ‘Parkdirektor Riggers’ (Modern climber) H 300cm x S 180cm

Large clusters of deep red to scarlet, semi single flowers, continuously produced. Slight fragrance (4) Dark green foliage
