The Italian Renaissance-style mansion was presented to the City of Pasadena in 1958 by the Wrigley family with the understanding that it would become the permanent headquarters for the Tournament of Roses, and so today it is known as the Tournament House. Surrounding the Tournament House are the Wrigley Gardens, which feature floral displays that span four and a half acres and more than 1,500 varieties of roses, camellias and annuals.
TIP: Pay special attention to the rose varieties, one pink variety, in particular, is resistant to black spots, white powder, and rust. They are known as the Tournament of Roses Rose, they were developed by William Warriner for the Tournament of Roses centennial.
