Anybody grow the rose "The Simple Life" with another climber?
I have recently planted up a gravel strip that runs along the side of the front garden where our caravan stood and now fancy getting "The Simple Life" to grow up the side of the shed at the far end.
The space is 9 feet across including trellis to the side and probably 6 feet high and south west facing. I'm wary of a planting a clematis as there is one that grows close to a rose climber in the back garden and its tendrils seem to strangle the new shoots on the rose.
So, I'm thinking of another climbing rose to put with "The Simple Life". I've been dithering for days over the vast choice available and have simply stalled. I thought maybe there could be somebody on here who is already doing this with "The Simple Life" who might be able to give me some clue.
I had thought of Susie as the colour might tone in with the stamens of "The Simple Life". Or am I trying to shove too much into too tight a space? Although I'm not that fussed about colour if it's an easy grow plant.
Any ideas would be much appreciated. Thanks.
