Disneyland Rose

Disneyland Rose
Rose of the Month For October, 2007
by Barbara Picarelli

The second in our MAGC Rose Garden Series, ‘Disneyland Rose’ is a lovely multicolored rose in the floribunda class that really dazzles with its distinctive shades of red, pink, orange and coral. Described as an orange blend with reverse of petals that are also an orange blend, the flowers are borne in clusters with the rose having 26 to 40 petals, only slight fragrance, and medium size, dark green foliage. The bush has an upright growth habit to a height of 4 feet, branching, and compact. The plant can be used for beds and borders; it has average disease resistance, but is susceptible to blackspot.

Hybridized in 2003 by John Walden and Keith Zary with parentage of ‘Sequoia Gold’ and ‘Hot Tamale’, it was introduced by Jackson and Perkins in 2004. It won the Gold Medal, Rose Hills, in 2006, and it is the official rose of the Disneyland Resort. The name is actually two words - ‘Disneyland Rose’, to differentiate it from the park. This rose is available in most nurseries and garden centers.
