Climbing rose suggestion please

fizzwhizzfizzwhizz Posts: 94
Hello does anyone have a recommendation for a mid to deep pink climbing rose for an arch? It will be mixed with either mme Julia correvon (crimson) or etoile violette (purple) in situ (annoyingly I forgot to label my Clems) and next door to a Philadelphus 😊 Pretty sunny spot

    I grow 'R. Mortimer Sackler' over my arch. It is a really pretty pink and has a fragrance of old fashioned roses, almost thornless too. It is exceedingly reliable, and is now 8 years old and has never suffered from black spot or mildew. It starts flowering late May and goes on throughout the summer with just a brief rest in late August before flowering again until first frost ( I had flowers in December last year)
    I have Clematis 'Gypsy Queen' growing with it
