Just Joey is one of the world’s all time favourite roses. I read somewhere (but can’t remember where) that it is Australia’s most popular apricot rose. It is certainly popular in Perth. Ask anyone to name one apricot rose and Just Joey rolls off their lips. It is for this reason that I resisted buying one for a long time. I didn’t want to conform. But when everyone else is right, why hold out?
Just Joey bears huge, loosely, double flowers that have excellent form and bud. They are deep apricot in the centre, fading towards a delicate peach on the edges. They are classically shaped with frilled petals. The blooms appear on long stems and last well in the vase.
Flower production is excellent. It is extremely free flowering . The bush is healthy and robust.
Just Joey has won many awards. Just Joey is a Hybrid Tea rose, introduced in 1972 by Cant (UK).
