Is Stairway to Heaven a climber. The name sounds like it would be. I really like the look of that one! They're all lovely, but that one has that little bit extra!

Yes, StH is a climber. Smaller type blooms, usually in those clusters. It's been a bit slow to mature because I have it on a fence behind a red horse chestnut tree. It needs good support because some of the clusters are huge and the little branchlets can't support the weight. But the clusters can be pretty spectacular with proper attention. Here's a pic from last year.....please don't mind the foliage, I had my hands so full that something had to give :-(

You have some nice ones there. Yes, there is something about red roses that make them special. There is something more about fragrant, red roses that make them even more special.
