There is no comparison for Juliet Garden roses; however, for economical reasons, there are a few things you can substitute the rose with. Consider the following flowers:

Campanella rose is a dark peach rose; however, once it is open, it is a light peach color like the Juliet Garden rose.

Finesse Roses is a standard rose with a large creamy peach rose that is still a great substitute.
Tiffany Roses (Standard but beautiful peach color, likewise Versillia Roses (Standard Rose)
If you want Pantone color for 2024 “Peach Fuzz” flowers, any of the above-suggested roses are worth adding to any bouquet’s floral recipes.

Juliet Garden Roses Care Before Designing Any Floral Bouquets:

Juliet garden roses are surely notorious for their thorns and short, thin stems, but they make up for this in their petal count and colors. Wear gloves while processing the garden roses. All garden roses like room-temperature to cool water. Fill your large, wide-mouth vase, such as 10- 12 inches high and 8 inches wide, or a short, wide-mouth bucket. Wider containers prevent the flower petals from getting damaged or bruised. Pulling out the stems with thorns when there is little room can damage the petals.
