    Yes those look like G. Roxanne. 

    As for a climber ... what else have you got growing nearby, what’s the soil like and when do you want the most colour?

    Think I'd go for a clematis but there is loads of choice. Group 3 is usually easy, quite tough, just chop it down every year late winter/early spring. Look up viticella.

    Soil is clay ( not heavy ). There's hebe heartbreaker and a green leaved hebe with pinky/lilac flowers (forgotton name)  also a Skimmia and a couple of laurels. In between the shrubs there's Campanula white clips and Geranium Rozanne. Ideally I would like flowers as long as possible 😊 but mainly spring/summer and something self clinging. I do love honeysuckle but think they might be too vigorous I dont want to swamp the berberis frame. Thanks

    I'd go for a Clematis texensis variety; they flower at the back end of summer and are not too big.
