A hybrid tea rose with large apricot coloured flowers and coppery tones Just Joey was bred by Cants inn the UK in 1972. The plant will reach around 1.5 metres in height, the flowers appear on single stems with the best and largest in spring. Flower that appear later in a second flush are usually a little smaller however still very attractive.
As the flowers open from tight buds they develop a frilly appearance and they do make good cut flowers. Fragrance is strong and best described as sweetly spiced. It was awarded R.H.S Award of Merit 1993 and voted theWorld’s Favourite Rose in 1994.
Care and Planting your Just Joey rose
Best grown in a position in full sun or at least 6 hours of good sun a day and a well drained soil, water your new plant well the day before planting and you are ready to plant.
- Weed the area well and dig the soil over.
- Dig in some well rotted compost and aged cow manure.
- Prepare a planting hole the same depth that the rose was in the container.
- Gently remove the plant from the container.
- Place in the planting hole and backfill.
- Water in well with a liquid seaweed fertiliser.
- Lightly mulch around the plant.
- Water deeply as the soil dries over the first spring and summer.
We suggest using a general purpose rose food such as Sudden Impact for roses with an application every 8 weeks from early spring through summer. Regular seaweed fertiliser application will also help keep your Just Joey Rose Bush flowering freely.
