Gemini™ is a double delight, with bicolor blooms in bright, complementary tones of cream and coral atop long, elegant stems. A 2000 All-America Rose Selection as valuable for large blooms and high petal count as for its delightful colors, it is a hybrid tea that looks dressy enough for the formal Rose garden, yet cheery enough for the mixed border!

You'll love these fully double 4- to 5-inch blooms, each packed with 25 to 30 petals held in perfectly symmetrical whorls. The flowers open from fat buds that arise on the end of long, strong stems clothed in dark green foliage. The buds themselves are so showy you may be tempted to cut them even before the blooms spiral open! But try to wait, for this soft-toned red and white combination of color is breathtaking!

Gemini™ is moderately fragrant, with a sweet scent that won't overwhelm you indoors and doesn't fight with that of other Roses in the garden. The plant is very vigorous and large, reaching 5 to 6 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide when mature. What an imposing presence it makes against the patio wall or planted in a long line as a living wall in the garden!

The blooms begin in late spring and continue into summer on this fine performer. Get your vases ready for the best indoor arrangements of their careers with these long-stemmed, double-colored beauties!

Plant Gemini™ in full sun and well-drained soil, organically enriched and kept evenly moist. It flowers best with a regular feeding throughout the growth season, and is hardy from zones 5-9.
