Rose of the Month For September, 2011
by Lydia Treadway, Master Rosarian
'Just Joey’ rose is a beautiful hybrid tea rose with orange - copper blossoms. The elegantly, pointed orange buds open into large blooms that are 4 to 6 inches across. The wavy-edged petals are a rich apricot color when new, softening to a light peach at the outer edges as blooms mature. The foliage is glossy with dark green leaves that are very disease resistant. 'Just Joey' has a bushy rounded habit that is perfect for smaller gardens. It generally grows to 3-4 feet. Blooms are long lasting and have a delicious intense fruity, tea/strong clove fragrance. It is wonderful to cut these flowers for a vase.
It won the James Mason Medal and the Gold Medal from the Royal National Rose Society in 1986, and was voted into the World Federation of Rose Societies Hall of Fame in 1994 as the world's favorite rose
Breeder: Cants of Colchester, 1972, United Kingdom
