Does a climbing rose naturally cascade?

12 years ago

Hi all, I am a new rose grower and unfamiliar with how a climbing rose cascades over a fence. I planted 5 courageous roses on the back side of my fence and want them to go over the top, and cascade over it so when you look at the fence from the front of the house you see beautiful roses cascading over. I also planted some beautiful Julia Child this year on the front side of the fence. I am posting pictures so you can see.

Here is my question. Courageous seems to just be going straight up over the top of the fence. Do I have do do something to them to train them to cascade or will they do this naturally on thier own in time?

Thank you for any help you can give me.
