"Everything's Coming Up Roses"

Miracle-Gro presents Rose Parade float

Miracle-Gro and the Pasadena Tournament of Roses Association team up with Muir Ranch, a two-acre sustainable urban teaching farm at John Muir High School, to expand the farm's footprint. Throughout the morning volunteers kicked off parade season by helping students install 100 rose bushes that will become part or Muir Ranch's new rose garden.

"Programs like Muir Ranch help foster community and empowers students to take an active interest in gardening and find inspiration in the most unexpected of places," said John Sass, Vice President and General Manager of Miracle-Gro. "I hope Miracle-Gro's continued support and today's efforts strengthen and expand opportunities at the farm to further widen the reach of these popular student-created floral arrangement."

Ty Pennington, 1967 Rose Queen Barbara Laughray and 1995 Rose Queen Aliya Coher joined Miracle-Gro at Muir Ranch helping to plant roses and were on-hand to recognize the program and participants with a $25,000 donation. As an added surprise, today's attendees were the first to see Miracle-Gro's 2017 Rose Parade float design.

'Everything's Coming Up Roses' is Miracle-Gro's Rose Parade salute to America's National flower and the most popular grown flower in backyard gardens. From tiny miniature roses to large vibrant blossoms, over 25,000 roses will be featured throughout in this fanciful floral float. Joining Pennington, Laughray and Coher on this year's float will be 2007 Rose Queen Mary McCluggage and 2015 Rose Queen Madison Triplett.

"This year's parade theme: 'Echoes of Success' celebrates those people, organizations and institutions that have made an impact on someone's life. The 2017 float not only honors the very flower for which the Parade is named, it'll recognize the accomplishments of four former Rose Queens and celebrates the success gardeners have achieved for decades with the help of Miracle-Gro."
