The All-America Rose selection (SSRS) for 2010 is an apricot-colored floribunda called "Easy Does It."  I would describe it for you, but I'm not sure I could do better than this piece of descriptive poetry from the official AARS:

"Blossoms in colors mango orange, peach pink & ripe apricot bounce off the mirrored glossy green leaves, providing a flamboyant fruit salad for the landscape. Her free-flowing swirling shades of sunset show up in fragrant large colorful clusters atop a rounded bushy plant. So disease resistant, vigorous, flowerful & fabulous, you just can’t say ‘no’ to this seductress of the garden. The one & only AARS award winner granted for 2010…it’s distinctively delightful."

The winner excelled in two-year trials in 23 gardens nationwide that judged its performance on disease resistance, flower production, fragrance and color. And they're not pampered; roses in the trials are treated just as an ordinary home gardener would treat them to ensure they will perform well in your backyard. 

Easy Does It, a Weeks Roses plant, was the sole winner this year.
