Comments At first glance Gizmo is not very much like what we expect of a rose. Its flowers are a slightly dusky reddish orange; they are single, and they have a white eye. There is a yellow boss of stamens that sets the blooms alight. The plant produces flowers with good continuity and it produces lots of them. It is said to be a good performer in any climate. Its full complement of beneficial traits makes it an outstanding plant for the corner of the garden that needs a dash of color. In fact, one might consider using it in pots where once geraniums might have been used.
