A new and distinct variety of bedding rose plant, referred to by its cultivar name, ‘MEICONFIZ’, is disclosed. The new variety forms attractive, double orange-colored flowers..... The first offer for sale of the new variety was Jun. 14, 2022, in the Netherlands.... The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) of the new variety was the ‘MEINEYTA’ variety (not patented). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) of the new variety was an unnamed seedling (not patented) that is the product of the cross between an unnamed seedling (not patented) and the ‘RADTKO’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 16,202)..... The description is based on the observation of two-years-old specimens of the new variety during April while budded by cuttings and growing outdoors at Le Cannet des Maures, Var, France
