The Fairies in the 1959 Disney Sleeping Beauty

“…Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather. They considered giving the trio powers over the realms their names suggested.

“Flora would be angry when Fauna’s animals ate her garden.

“When Merryweather would get upset and cry, she’d cause rainstorms.  But Walt discarded that approach.  A;; that survives is Flora’s idea to protect the princess by turning her into a flower.”  Solomon, Once Upon A Dream, p. 28.
