The rose Gemini has long pointed buds with large outer petals that reflex at the tips as they unfurl to form a flower with creamy white center surrounded by a dusty pink band. The flowers are borne on long stems usually singly but sometimes in clusters of up to five blooms. The bushes are upright, vigorous, well-branched, with few prickles, and an abundance of dark green, glossy, healthy leaves. ‘Gemini’ is considered very disease resistance and is prized as a cut flower and for its high center which makes it a top notch exhibition rose.
