Paul - Those are so gorgeous! I am wondering how many roses you have and if you have more picture? Your Savoy Hotel looks heavenly!

Thanks, Seil and Sara-Ann. I grow a few hundred roses. Lost count! I also "adopted" an old cemetery near my house and have planted about 100 there. Also "adopted" an area across the street owned by the town. I will try and post more pix. -Paulie

They look so healthy and beautiful. Are they good cut roses? Any BS problems?

Mercy me! Your pictures are gorgeous. Is that photo from your spring flush or right now? Can't wait to see more photos of your lovely gardens and the adopted ones. Judy

Thanks all. Pix were taken this morning. This is the second flush. Savoy Hotel is very disease resistant as well as winter-hardy on its own roots in zone 5. Excellent cut flowers, but no scent. Otherwise, I find it the perfect hybrid tea, which is why I have planted so many - I must have a total of 15 in the different gardens.

Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful rose and garden with us. I have often wondered about this rose but did not know if it would be hardy here. Good news, it is! Love pink rosesâ¦.well all roses. Your garden is lovely and I hope you will share more with us. Lesley

Thanks, sanrosa and Lesley. Savoy Hotel can be hard to find on its own roots. Heirloom used to carry it, but not any more. I can't remember where I purchased my last batch. If I can find it, I'll let you know.

I just learned that Angel Gardens and Rogue Valley both carry Savoy Hotel own-root. Rogue Valley has some in-stock. Angel Gardens is out-of-stock.

I am so impressed with all the roses you've shown. Do you grow mostly grafted or own-root?

Sara-Ann: I now grow almost exclusively own-root roses. Grafted or budded roses just don't make it thru the winter here.

When I had the cabana put up this summer, the workers damaged badly two yellow climbers 'Goldregen' and 'Climbing Carefree Sunshine'. Turns out it was all for the best, as they both put out vigorous new growth from the base. Here you see 'Goldregen' peeking out.

I am finding if I prune back some climbers hard, I get much healthier, vigorous plants. So now I have large, billowing shrubs instead of one-cane climbers with a few flowers at the top.

That is Double Knockout there in front, which I like as a nice red accent.

Oh, I just love your garden. The pictures are just breathtaking! How fun to have adopted a cemetery also! I would love to see pics from that as well.

Oh awesome Paul ! I had seen her on the design toscano catalog , but was unsure of their quality . What do you rate them as ? Any trouble with her toppling ? Do you put her away for winter ? Any paint chips ? Thanks for your help ! :)

lilyfinch: I keep the statue outside all year. Has never toppled, is heavy enough to stay put. It's got a little lichens growing on it now, even noticed a small hairline crack, but she otherwise looks great after 8 years or so outside.

Paul and others, Palatine Roses is offering it when they start taking orders Sept. 8. I was trying to keep my order down to 3, which was hard, and I keep admiring your pictures! Is anyone else in this dilemma?

Thanks, Carol & Nin. Kentucky_Rose: Is Palatine offering it own-root? I ask because my experience with Savoy Hotel as a grafted rose was not that great. It was vigorous for a year or two and then bit the dust. My own-root Savoy Hotel have been thriving for several years now.

OTOH, maybe zone 6 will work for a grafted rose. I'm zone 5.

Paul, thanks for pointing that out. They're probably grafted on multiflora.
