There is one climbing rose you might try. Sombreuil(sometimes called Colonial White, has flat, perfectly formed creamy white blooms with an old garden rose appearance. It is quartered with a ?button? eye. The bloom can be tinged with pink or yellow, and will hold its color better if given partial shade, with five or six hours of sun. It is very hardy and once established, quite vigorous. Because it can bloom on new growth, it produces plenty of blooms in the fall as well. It can be from 8-13 feet tall when mature. The long canes can be trained in many shapes. Hope this one works for you!
