See roses inspired by and named for celebrities, from Old Hollywood legends like Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe to modern greats as far-reaching as Dolly Parton, Victoria Azarenka, Barbra Streisand and Amy Grant, and consider adding a little glitz, glam and name recognition to your own garden.
The ‘Dick Clark’ rose debuted on a Camelot-themed float at the Rose Parade in Pasadena, Calif., on New Year’s Day in 2011 — perfect timing for celebrating the longtime host of New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, who died a little over a year later in 2012 at age 82. With cheerful double blooms that open from dark red to showcase swirls of cream and cherry pink before turning burgundy under the sun, this classic ensures that Dick Clark’s legendary youthful exuberance will live on for years to come. See the Malibu home where Dick Clark and his wife grew these roses in their garden.
