Sea Pearl has recently been rediscovered stateside. It is a unique blend of ivory and coral that - at least under the California sun - is a little more subtle and a little more natural-looking than Gemini. It is nicely branched, has nice, healthy foliage, and the blooms are elegantly high-centered opening slowly in cool weather.

The rose is resistant to fungal disease, but it does not thrive in the face of adversity and for that fault has been lawn-mower pruned in my own garden. It's one I'd like to grow.
