PASADENA — Officials of the 126th Rose Parade announced winning float entries for the Tournament of Roses held on January 1st.

American Armenian Rose Float was awarded The President’s Trophy “for effective floral use and presentation”

The float named ‘Cradle of Civilization’ celebrated the story of Armenian immigrants who have contributed to society. This was the groups first Rose Parade appearance.

One hundred years ago the Tournament of Roses chose Mr. Pasigian, an Armenian-American as the Grand Marshal, but this was the first time the Armenian-American community has been represented as a float.

  1. Stunningly beautiful float in the 2015 Rose Parade. Is there a list of the plants & plant materials used to create that beautiful float? Would you share a copy of that list with me? I am a professional horticulturist and would very much like to know the names of all the plants used on the float.
