GUY SAVOY CLB.
Guy Savoy is a hardy, moderately vigorous, climbing shrub rose bred by Delbard in France and introduced in 2002. It was named as a tribute to the famous French chef, Guy Savoy.
Climbing roses should be featured more in our gardens. They can be relatively easy to train to screen off fences, sheds or walls and can assist in providing privacy from neighbours. Modern climbing roses can provide colour for up to 9 months in a year.
Guy Savoy thrives in our hot, dry climate and is relatively disease resistant. It has large, semi-double cerise blooms with white and red splashes of colour and a subtle orange, peach and vanilla fruity fragrance. It flowers both singly and in clusters with up to 6 blooms per cluster. It reaches a moderate size, 3m x 3m, and is clothed in thick, healthy foliage and has exceptionally good repeat flowering throughout the season.
This is an excellent rose which will provide years of pleasure.
Available from Wagner’s Rose Nursery and Newman’s Nursery.
