Comments For decades this was considered the best orange floribunda, but its tendency toward rather awkward growth - making long, bare stems and placing great clusters of multicolored flowers at the end - makes it look gawky, almost comical in the garden. That said, sometimes its flowers are very pretty. It may be a good collector's rose.
