I planted three own-root 'Savannah' bushes from Chamblee's Rose Nursery in spring, 2016. I enjoyed beautiful foliage and wonderfully fragrant blooms intermittently from June 7 through early fall without the use of any pesticides. The blooms did not suffer brown edges as did 'Beverly' and 'Wedding Bells'. However, as fall progressed, 'Savannah' stopped blooming, in contrast to 'Beverly' an 'Wedding Bells', which began to bloom profusely. Based on one season in my zone 6b Pennsylvania garden, it seems that 'Savannah' really shines when summer temperatures are hot (or days are longer) and is less likely to bloom as fall progresses.
