Santa Clara’s Official City Flower The Peace Rose
The Peace Rose is Santa Clara’s official flower. It is a yellow color rose with pink edging. The idea to adopt an official City flower was conceived by Mrs. Luke Warburton, member of one of the oldest pioneer families in Santa Clara, and mother of former City Council Member Austen Warburton.
The Peace Rose was recommended for selection by the Historical & Landmarks Commission, the Santa Clara Woman’s Club, and the City Parks & Recreation Department. After years of work and discussion, the Peace Rose was approved as the official City flower by unanimous Council action on June 19, 1962. This rose has been planted in some City parks and around City buildings.
