Comments A very popular rose in Europe, Just Joey was voted World's Favorite Rose in 1994. The petals open coral or orange, and fade toward buff. This gives the rose complex, soft look that allows it to fit into any perennial border gracefully. It also is produced on a nicely branched plant. The flowers are not always the high centered "masterpiec" style roses that win exhibitions; but as one rose commentator said "It's hard to compare Just Joey with other Large-Flowered Roses, as the richness of the flowers and the looseness of the form make it so exciting and unusual,"
