Hello everybody , would like advise on how to look after this very sorry looking rose. I don't know its name , it has dark red flowers which now only grow at the very top of the tree. It`s over 20 years old

Hallo everybody, I would love to have another cold frame,but I`ve only got a small corner thats facing north east behind the shed. The frame would have to be an upright shelved type made from glass and timber .The 4`` brick wall at the back though  has sun for 5-6 hours daily,so shoudn`t be to cold. Am I being to hopeful, ? Thanks.

 Top plant, grown from one seed, fast grower,is it a perenial? Second plant, no idea, just grew in pot, very slow grower. Third plant, also came up in pot, stem feels woody
