Soft colour? No.
Sweet perfume? Not particularly fragrant.
Certainly not an "old rose" perfume which is my preference. It is classed as a "Hybrid Tea Rose", after all.
So why do I like it? I find that hard to explain, but I do like it and I have two plants growing beside my front entrance-way,
|Just Joey as a tight bud|
|Just Joey opening|
|Just Joey fully mature flower|
starting to fade slightly.
Less of the bright apricot,
and more pink coming through.
