Best Color Combination?


By ktm18


I need everyones advice…

I have a Don Juan (red) climbing rose bush on my black chainlink fence..

I’ve also recently bought a white climbing rose bush, as well as a white clematis.

I also have a yellow (golden showers) climbing rose bush.

What would you put next to the red Don Juan – yellow or white?

I’m thinking the red & white might look pretty..however, the red and yellow would make a nice contrast against the black chain link fence.

Thanks for your opinions and advice!

It depends ktm, what is planted near it in colour terms if its pale and pretty then Red and White, if theres nothing else around why not be dramatic and go for Red and yellow.

Thanks for all the comments! It looks like it will be the red & white combo...

Stroller...I don't have plants around this area. I have some green bushes on the outside of my fence & grass....this particular fence is located on the back side of my house...and it's visible when driving up the street...that's why I want to make it pretty with some beautiful colors of roses! =)
