Gemini Hybrid Tea Rose A relatively recent rose that is becoming a favorite of 'rose show' exhibitors. It is also a beautiful garden rose. It blooms in quantity all summer long and occasionally will have a bloom that will look just perfect on the bush.
This popular hybrid tea rose is known for some of the most beautiful tea rose colors, with a creamy white base that blushes upwards from the stem to magenta red edges. The Gemini also has a very classic profile for the original tea roses from the 1800s, so it is revered by collectors as an asset to a tea rose collection.
With a mild but sweet fragrance, this hybrid is also loved because of its disease-resistant flowers and foliage that is emerald green and shiny. The Gemini hybrid is easy to landscape, since it can accommodate a cutting garden, or it can be a border or the focal point of your rose garden. It can grow from 4 to 6 feet tall as a shrub. This rose hybrid thrives best in moderate temperatures, usually in USDA Hardiness Zones 5 through 9.
