The Orange Impressionist rose, is a rose that displays very unique colored roses, the color of oranges!
These shrub roses are not only hardy, but considered very disease resistant as well. (Two things I always look for in a rose)
The rose blooms in clusters, giving you plenty of beautiful blooms in a single stem.
If you like orange colored roses, a row or hedge of these would really make a statement, and be extremely lovely.
The beautiful orange colored blooms are striking! They have a lighter orange color on the reverse of the petals, and lots of shiny green foliage.

What makes it a Good Rose?
I photographed the roses you see in the pictures at the Elizabeth Park rose garden in Conn., and I must say, they certainly got My attention! I saw lots and lots of pretty blooms on the bush.
