Love this rose, does not act like a diva but sure looks like one. Orange color is positively electric.

'Impatient' has been growing in my garden since 1986 and has not required any attention at all. It flowers until late November and has never shown any leaf spot disease or mildew problems. I give this rose 10 points on a 10 point scale.
