The constellation Gemini is a pair of twins and anyone born under that sign is said to have a dual nature. So it is completely appropriate that a rose whose coloration is as changable as this one's be given this name.

At first one thinks the twins are the two colors found in the rose at any point in time. Here it is orange and ivory. Under different conditions it might be pink and white or coral and pale pink. But the twins could just as well symbolize the variable nature of the color scheme itself.

The rose is reputed to be vigorous and easy to care for. It received an AARS award in its year of introduction and is rated 8.0 by ARS members.
