Planning 4 climbing roses - Z10, Palos Verdes peninsula --- Ideas

Hi all,

We will be planting some climbers next year in our sometimes foggy coastal weather - Z10. Every time I read good reviews about a climbing rose I later find negative posts about the same rose. Any suggestions for climbers in the cooler coastal weather? I've read about America but am a little worried about the 41+ petals b/c some roses will nod excessively from the wetness with our foggy overcast weather. How would you compare Blaze vs. Dublin Bay? I've heard Blaze gets some disease vs. another red, Dublin Bay, that it is a slow grower? How about Altissimo for an arbor? Too leggy and barren at the bottom? Westerland is beautiful in pics; any experience here in SoCal coastal areas? How about Pinkie vs. Jeanne la Joie? Royal Sunset? At our old house near here we had 2 great New Dawn climbers that were enormous. But they are too big for our yard here. Lastly, anyone's experience with Laguna, Flutterbye, Ghislaine de Feligonde, the Rambler?

TIA Lee

You might get a better response over in "Rose discussions" or "Antiques".
