I tried this rose once. I understand that it is a descendant of Just Joey, so I should have known better. Just Joey has a reputation for being tender, and its descendant has the same problem.

The bush grows vigorously and the blooms are very large. The color is too pastel for my taste. There is some fragrance, not a lot.

But this rose could not survive our ugly NE Wisconsin (Zone 5) winter, even though I had it buried in ground. It failed for me. It might be a fine rose in warmer climates, but not out here on the "frozen tundra."
