Help with ID of (mislabled?) rose

megghinaJune 26, 2012

Hi all - I'm trying to ID this lovely rose that I bought from Lowe's a few days ago. I'm almost positive that it's a Hybrid Tea, but in color, it doesn't really match the image or description given on the label. Its flowers (open) are a beautiful dusky-pink with a slightly warm hue. The buds have a much stronger apricot-to-coral hue on the reverse side of the petals, and are lighter on the inside. It has a very weak fragrance. The label IDs it as "Just Joey," but every photo I've seen and description I've read suggests that a Joey should be more apricot/orange in appearance with a stronger fragrance.

Any ideas? Many thanks, and I hope the image helps... (It's pretty true to the actual color.)

I find often times they've just had their lables swapped - and if you ask at the lowes you purchased it from what apricot- pink tree rose they carried, they might be able to tell you. They may still have it in stock if you go looking too. I bought a scarlet flowered clematis from lowes which had a nelly moser lable. They carried both nelly and naiobi then, so itwas obvious that i actually had naiobi.
I did buy a rose from Shopko which i think was intentionally mislabled once though. Claimed to be tamora but wasn't (i own tamora already)
