Rose recommendations please.

Looking for a recommendation for a climbing rose.. highly fragrant and either apricot or pink in colour. (I already have Gertrude Jekyll)
Thanks in advance!

    I've got a Generous Gardener (David Austin) which is glorious, scented, tough and beautiful. It's pink.
    Lady of Shallot (apricot - also David A) is lovely as well.
    As with every plant, it does also depend on where you are siting it though.

    It’s for a south facing garden, in Surrey. I do love the Lady of Shallot but would it climb as tall as 6 feet? I looked on the DA website and it says it’s a shrub. I’ll have a look at your other recommendation. Thank you!

    Mine in my old garden reached about 8ft. It was gorgeous. I know this link is for the US site, but this is the Rose I have:

    Mine were south west facing back then.

    Ok, well that’s good to know. I’ll probably go for that one then as it’s so lovely! Unfortunately it won’t let me open the link you’ve attached 😕
