Floribunda Rose 'Disneyland Rose'

Floribunda Rose
Rosa 'Disneyland Rose'
Synonyms: JACmouse
Introduced: United States (2004), Jackson & Perkins
Petal Count: 26 to 40 petals
Parentage: Sequoia Gold × Hot Tamale

This rose was in the rose garden when I took it over. It is a clustered flowered/floribunda rose. I probably would have never bought this rose but it has been a good performer. Its delicate shades orange and pink have been interesting and nice to gaze upon. Disney wanted a tough, low maintenance and I am sure a little showy rose and this one delivers. It is the official rose of The Disneyland® Resort and is planted heavily throughout the park. It is also a Jackson and Perkins New Generation rose, which grow on their own roots.

It is so nice to finally have some roses blooming.

This was a nice combination I saw at work yesterday. Kousa Dogwood and a Rhododendron blooming together. It was better after it rained and the Dogwood was actually hanging into the Rhodo but the picture didn’t come out as well.

These are wonderful. Our rhodies are tired out and raining blossoms now. I love these tenacious bushes.

Rhododendrons are one of my favorites. It is nice having a lot of them since that extends the blooming time.
