Savoy Hotel Hybrid Tea Roses
Savoy Hotel Hybrid Tea Rose
Savoy Hotel is one of my all time favourite roses and I have planted it in every garden I have had. Scented, perfectly shaped light pink flowers on long stems which are ideal for cutting are produced in abundance from June through to October. It is a strong growing hybrid tea and so is best placed towards the back of a rose border where, if you plant it in groups of three it produce the most fantastic display all summer.
Savoy Hotel is a goot in terms of disease resistance but it is so free flowering and obliging that it does best with an annual top dressing of something like Vitax Rose food (available from us if you want) followed by a good mulch of garden compost or other well rotted organic matter to help improve the quality of the soil they grow in.

Great for your garden
You can tell I am in love with this rose and so am biased, but honestly, as long as it has enough light you should growit for impact, for scent, for cutting. Nearly 30 years after it was bred, this is still a pink hybrid tea almost without equal so should be used wherever you want a good, free flowering, elegant rose bush

Bred by Harkess in 1989 and it is a travesty that Savoy Hotel has not won the RHS Award of Garden merit. It is unquestionably still one of the very best light pink roses there is.
