Can someone recommend a pretty climber that would do well in a zone 4. Preferably not red.

Golden Showers is a nice yellow climber that is hardy to zone 4.

Kiss of Desire is a nice pink.

Joseph's Coat might be hardy to zone 4. Some sources mention 4, others mention 5.

Seven Sisters has several shades of pink at going for it.

Paul's Himalayan Musk Rambler is light pink color.

Seminole Wind is another pink climber.

Peggy Martin, another pink.

Hope that helps!!

I live in Zone 5 and tried to keep Golden Showers going 3 times, no dice. Joseph's Coat, not even close, acts like Zone 6. Victorian Memory is zone 4, John Cabot, Darlow's Enigma, and Laguna is techically Zone 5 but thrives without extra protection. Another thing you can do is wrap the roses in burlap, just one layer plus mulch.
Good luck.

We're on the border of zone 4 and zone 5 in Maine. Sky's the Limit is a lovely butter yellow that has done well, although the canes often die back and it has to start over. Likewise Climbing Westmoreland a lovely orangey yellow. When the canes die back the new ones alway produce roses by late June.

New Dawn, a nice shell pink, produces canes that don't die back.
