Default Recommend a rose for low trellis

Hi all

I have a low trellis at the rear of my garden which is looking rather bare
so I'm looking for something to pretty it up. The trellis is approx 2 ft
high and 8ft wide, it faces south east and gets some sun for approx 2/3 of
the day.

I was thinking of a climbing rose but wasn't sure if 2ft was too low to do
it justice, also I don't want anything too rampant which presumably rules
out ramblers. Not too fussed about colour etc although something with a long
flowering season would be nice.

Any recommendations of a suitable rose or failing that some other climber
would be great

Thanks

Jim

Maybe a ground cover rose would work? I don't know but would have thought
that you could attach it to your trellis. Or a non-rampant rambler. I'd
guess that you'd need something with pretty bendy stems to be able to attach
it to this space.

Why bother? Just plant rose bushes in front of it.

Fair comment but what I didn't go into in my first post is that I've got a
sunken deck area the other side of the trellis, The idea being that
something growing over the trellis would give that area a bit more privacy
but I could also appreciate the climber from both sides.

Cheers

Jim
