This story is about a particular flower at Disneyland, a rose. It’s not just any rose though, it’s the Disneyland Rose. Disney recently shared with Inside the Magic the story of this rose and why it is the perfect floral representation of Disneyland. This bloom embodies Disney magic and hope.
Lisa Greathouse wrote, “Back in 2001, the Disneyland Resort Horticulture team began its search for a rose unique enough to bear the Disneyland name. The team worked with Jackson and Perkins, a leading rose grower and supplier, visiting rose fields to look at hundreds of shrubs until they found the disease-resistant floribunda rose with huge clusters of flowers. Since 2002, the rose has graced the entrance to Disneyland Park near the Main Gate turnstiles, as well as several other areas in the park.”
