  • Landscaping, comment and question...

    We were at Disneyland and CA last Sunday, the landscaping... more beautiful than ever!
    the combinations of flower and plants... gorgeous...
    they must spend an amazing amount of time and effort on the landscaping and the results... wonderful

    a friend was very interested in a tall succulent, green at the base and orange at the top... we walked both parks and I can't remember where it was...


    Firestick or Pencil plant?
    I've never seen them this tall.....

    Though I haven't visited in a few years, the landscaping is one of the things that stands out in my mind. I've never seen such attention to detail, it's about as close to perfect as you can get.

    It always reminds me of what I believe to be 'True Disney'.

        Are they the kangaroo paws, GwenRowan? I ask because the ones in our yard are crazy tall this year -- I guess due to all the extra rain. I know they've been using them a lot lately in water-wise gardens.

          I agree. The landscaping at Disneyland is amazing.
          A group of friends and I all did the Cultivating the Magic tour that Disneyland offered. I did a whole write-up about it here. Cultivating the Magic Tour at Disneyland

          In doing my trip report, I came across a very good website that is very thorough in describing all the different plants at Disneyland. There's over 2000 plants listed on their website!

          Might help you figure out what the plant you're looking for is called.

            Nobody comes close to matching Disney's landscaping! The gardens there don't only look incredible, but the landscaping manages to tell its own story and serve to immerse the guest into entire different worlds. There was a book about Disney's gardens that came out a couple of decades ago. One of my biggest Disney regrets is that I didn't get that book when I could.

                    Those are Euphorbia tirculli - aka Sticks on fire. They can grow to 25 feet high and 10 feet around. They've become very popular recently in SoCal. It's deepest colors occur during winter.

                      Those are pretty! I read you need to be careful. The sap of the plant can cause discomfort especially contacted with face.

                        Yes! I also love the edible plants in Tomorrowland. The basal, rosemary, and lemon are especially appropriate for
                        "Seasonings of the Force."

                              Great one! (seasonings)

                              we always enjoy the herbs... I miss not having a garden anymore.... I loved growing herbs and edibles ;-)

                              their arrangements show that edibles can be artistic
