Greetings! Newbie to rose growing effort and requesting recommendations from ye the experts. 🙂

I have a lovely Don Juan climber 🌹 that literally took off within its first 3 months 😄. I'm now in search of a counterpart: fragrant climbing white rose to create a "war of the roses" theme (red/white) in my front yard. Some of my Don Juan's characteristics are:

Plant Height 10 ft; Plant Width 5 ft; Bloom Size 5 in; Flower Shape: Cupped, Double, Flat. Produces scores of wonderful rich, dark velvety-red, double, cupped 4-5" blooms with a wonderful strong fragrance.

Thank you in advance for recommendations! Thank You! 🌞

Why don't you plant 'Sombreuil, Cl.' (aka "Colonial White")?

It is widely-available, intensely fragrant, vigorous, and disease-resistant.

Most kind, seilMI, truly. I was so surprised to see how well Don Juan grew - hoping to find the sibling to complement it. 🙂 Have a great day! 🌞
