    The flowers of Disneyland...

    ..or more specifically, Disneyland's main entrance.

    Can anyone identify the flowers that make up the Mickey floral area in front of Main Street Station?

    Thanks

    I don't know the specific ones for this iteration, but keep in mind the darn thing is replanted every few months to keep the plants and flowers in season.

    Someone needs to tell Disney to plant some of that stuff in the planters next to the chute as you exit iasw. There's bees all over the place in those planters and if your boat gets backed up lucky if someone doesn't get stung!

    rosemary repel bees? i don't think so. every rosemary plant i've ever seen has been swarming with bees. but come to think of it, i can't recall ever seeing rosemary in the DLR, so maybe you're thinking of another herb that is smaller in size to go with the basil and sage?

    I don't know all of the flowers but there is more than one type used to make the image of Mickeyand its surroundings and as mentioned previously they are changed as the seasons change. Currently I know some of the flowers used are Marigolds and Pointsettas.

    Re: The flowers of Disneyland...

    Sorry I can't answer your question, but I did want to say that I hope they change the current display after the Holidays. It has been there for quite some time. It's nice, don't get me wrong. The Tink effect is actually pretty cool. But it seems to have been there much longer than usual? They didn't even do the pumpkin thing for Halloween this year.

    I'm no expert on the standard length of time though, so correct me if I'm wrong...

    The rosemary is at DCA outside of the Wine Country area in massive walls. I agree about the bees, but I have an herb book that says bees don't like it...I guess the bees didn't read that book

    With the whole movie release and Pixie Hollow going full bore, I'd guess that the Tink affect is there to stay for a while.

    I'm sure that the fine folks at City Hall can give you the answers you seek. They once showed me a thick binder that listed every tree and plant in the park, its location, and included notes about how to take care of it. I'm not sure if flowers were in the book as well, but I'm sure the answers are somewhere in that building.

    The flowers in the Mickey Floral are Violas. The reason that has been the same for awhile is because of Tink and the lights that were installed for it. It was not possible to do the pumpkins or poinsettias this year. The plan is to have a whole new look for the new Celebrations Campaign. I personally don't care for the new look, but we'll see what happens.

    I passed on the info, but any flower is going to attract bees....

    Also the climbing roses on the arches.
