Beautiful Rafique saheb. Red Edin is exquisite and Rachel is beautiful also. Amazing variety here and some unique roses. You have done a lot if research befits purchasing. Please give an opinion on which roses you feel are the best in your garden right now.

Roses are a rich man's plant in our climate :-), who have unlimited space, roses do not like to share borders.
That specific border will be dull in summers, fall and then winters......The big question is can you afford to keep those borders dull for that long?
and if in that bargain they die? Perennial lost is like losing a war for gardener, annual lost is just a skirmish given away...LOL

Roses have good companions for for summer, in fall some of them will again spread colors.
Annual like zinia and potolaca etc, would fill your borders with colors. then vine like quisqalis, jasmine (multiple cultivar), garlic vines... would be there to spread colors and fragrance.
Yes its bit difficult but not impossible to get all the roses healthy and live. Its require regular maintaince schedule. if missed the schedule then will have to suffer.
You cant get best things with little effort.
Every thing has its end either earliar or later( annuals or perenials). :D
