Welcome to the World of Rose Gardening or Rose Gardening World.  Take time and smell the roses.  Roses have been around for millions of years which just prove that roses are not difficult to grow. The Rose is also our National Floral Emblem and the state flower of several states.  Here at Rose Gardening World, you’ll find rose articles that will educate you about roses – its history, rose culture, rose profiles and even rose verses all in one place.  So visit Rose Gardening World often.  

‘Anne Morrow Lindbergh’ x ‘New Year’

Gemini is always a winner.  It won the 2005 Members’ Choice Award from the American Rose Society.  It also won the AARS 2000 award.  It has all the qualities that exhibitors love – high-centered blooms, double, large and elegantly formed.  It has a lighter tint in the spring and gets darker hue as it progresses through the season.  The light pink color with a darker hue on the edges is so beautiful.  No wonder it always captures a place at the Court of Honor of a Rose Show.

Gemini produces plenty of exhibition type blooms on a tall, bushy plant.  Most often, blooms come singly on a long, thick stems with large, deep green glossy foliage. This rose looks great in the garden and in a vase. It also lasts a long time in a vase.  If you have one space in your garden, try to get Gemini.  It will capture your heart as it does most judges at the Rose Show.
