'Savoy Hotel'

One of my all-time favorites. Probably the best H/T for the North. Winter hardy in zone 5 when on its own roots, extremely disease resistant, constantly blooming, very vigorous, rainproof (no flopping). I have a bed of nine of these. Excellent bedder. Mine are over 5' tall now, bushy, lots of flowers. The ONLY fault is zero scent. But it's got everytging else going for it. Hard to find on its own roots now, I know Hortico and/or Pickering has it grafted. This rose should, IMO, be designated as an "earthwise" rose, it's that healthy.

Oooh!! I've always wanted Savoy Hotel!!! It reminds me of Tournament of Roses in how many flowers it has. I think they would go well together! Any more pictures of it?
