Which clematis for climbing roses?
I am new to clematis and was thrilled to see a clematis board on GW. I live in Southern California zone 9 and I wish to grow clematis with my climbing roses. I have read that Type 2 is the type to pair with climbing roses.(?) I am looking for large flowered varieties that have the longest blooming period. We have such a long growing season here! Any colors will work with the exception of white. I already have lots of the color white represented in my landscape from 7 iceberg roses.
The climbing roses I have areÂ
Abraham Darby CL. and The Impressionist Â together on an iron structure
Heritage CL. and Red Eden CL. Â together on a structure
Tess of the dÂUrbervilles CL. Â on a pillar
Social Climber Â on a pillar
Don Juan CL. Â attached to a white stucco wall
Any and all suggestions/advice will be greatly appreciated.
