From DL blog: The first day of spring is the perfect time to tell the story of the Disneyland Rose. The search for a rose unique and beautiful enough to be named for Disneyland park began in 2001. Karen Hedges, of the Disneyland Resort Horticulture team, conducted the search herself.
“I visited rose field trials looking at hundreds, if not thousands, of floribunda roses, as I’ve found this type of rose to be excellent for landscape use,” Karen recalls. “It was important that the flower color was unique and the shrub itself was from disease-resistant parent stock.”
Eventually, she discovered a shrub with bright, multi-colored petals.
“The huge clusters of flowers with petals ranging from apricot-orange to pink seemed a perfect choice,” Karen said, adding that the flower had a delicate spice fragrance. “This particular rose had impeccable lineage and would stand the test of time.”
For nearly nine years, the Disneyland Rose has been gracing the entrance to Disneyland park near the Main Gate turnstiles, as well as several other areas in the park. Spring is here, so be on the lookout for this unique and beautiful bloom on your next visit!
