Low Roses | Bushes | Shrubs | Climbers
|Savoy Hotel is one of a handful of roses that seems to photograph flawlessly every time. The flower is a warm pale pink bordering on shell pink, and the petals reflex ever so slightly as they unfurl from the high-centered bud. 'Exquisite' comes to mind.
The rose is a steady grower and its glossy dark foliage is resistant to disease. The flowers are not huge by hybrid tea standards, but they are very pleasing. There is some scent.
ARS members are relatively pleased with it and give it a 7.7.
