I bought two bare root climbing peace roses this year and planted them in large planters with trellises. I've had them for about a month and they still look like sticks. I'm not giving up, but since they are a centerpiece in a "formal" vegetable garden (raised beds, with mulch in between, edible landscaping) I really would like something growing up the trellises this year.
Soo, is it ok to plant like a annual vine along with the climbing rose in the pots?
That way while the roses are doing their thing I still have color on the trellises? Or should I try and hang something on the top of the trellis and let it cascade down?

Clematis is beautiful with roses, but I don't think you can put it in the same pot with your rose as there wouldn't be enough room for both root systems. I'm no expert, but I think that's the case. Maybe you could plant a couple of clematis' in two smaller pots next to the roses and let it trail up the trellis.
Just a thought...
