Abstract (Document Summary)

Throughout his career, Evans imported vegetation from around the world to create accurate fictional settings that amplify the storylines of Disney's various attractions--from the giant bamboo, ficus and towering palms of the Jungle Cruise in the Anaheim park to the African plants that he brought to Disney's Animal Kingdom in Orlando, Fla.

A young Walt Disney had met the Evans family years earlier, when he came to buy some roses from their nursery for his three-bedroom house in the San Fernando Valley, said Paul Comstock, director of landscape design at Disney, who was a protege of Evans.
