I have both a Just Joey and a Brandy rose and, if it weren't for the labels, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between them. Can anyone comment on the similarity or was I sold the wrong "just joey"? Thanks for your help.

I just googled the images for both, and they are incrdibly similar.

Just Joey:

Brandy:

So you may in fact have two different roses! That look the same!

According to Help Me Find Just joey has ruffled petals and a strong fragrance while Brandy has a mild tea fragrance and no mention of ruffles. Perhaps those details can distinguish your twins?

Here is how our Just Joey blossoms look like. They do have a nice smell, but it is not as strong as Double Delight, Sunsprite, or Mr. Lincoln.

Hope this helps.

Tablerocktina, here's an old thread from years ago to show you that your confusion is nothing new.
