Is it typical for roses of this variety to vary in coloration?

The first one was pale cream with a little pink on the edges, and the second was much more coral. I just posted pics of the two flowers on this site. Both were lovely, so I have no complaints. I was just wondering if this is typical for Gemini, or if it gets more "pink" when the weather is warmer?

I would say most of my blooms of Gemini don't look like either of the pics you posted, but perhaps somewhat in between your photos. I bet it will settle into more predicable color and form as it matures.

I don't think I can add much to the comments here on this awesome rose but I just posted a killer Gemini bloom in the Photos.

Please note that "Gemini" goes by the name of "St Johns College" in South Africa

Good evening Madame, Monsieur,
First, excuse me for my bad english...
I am interested in the origin of the name of St Johns College. You published a post about it a lot of time ago .... And I come a little late on this discussion ... is it possible to know for which occasion the rose has received the name of this college ? Did the college commission this rose? Was the creator a member of this college?

Merci beaucoup !

Kind regards

Strasbourg France

I think that Ludwig's Roses of South Africa named it after the South African school in Johannesburg to commemorate an event.

Not mentioned in the comments here but have read elsewhere.

One of the easiest seed parents to pollinate, not a lot of aborted failures, with a lot of germinating seed (often around 20 seedlings per hip). Possibly a bit of a throwback to it's ancestor Orangeade which is also reportedly easy to breed with.
