Comments Showbiz, Impatient, and Trumpeter are three scarlet red floribundas. Showbiz is a trifle less orange, placing its color between that of Impatient and Europeana. It is a warm color, but not a garish one, working with buff, warm pink, yellow, coral, gold, orange, salmon, pretty much every color except cerise and lilac. They look especially good in a bed near garden structures that are painted white. The plant is vigorous, well branched, and healthy. The roses are said to bleach in the sun in the hottest parts of the US, where they might benefit from a little afternoon shade.
