Star Roses and Plants Receives Four Awards from American Garden Rose Selections Testing Program

Star Roses and Plants, a leading genetics company involved directly in breeding roses, edibles, perennials and woody plants, recently announced it has received four awards from the 2020 American Garden Rose Selections (AGRS) testing program. AGRS reportedly recognizes roses that are easy to care for, disease-resistant and suitable for different regions of the country.

The winners are as follows:

Canyon Road, a regional choice award winner in the Northeast, Northwest and South Central regions;

Lemon Fizz, a regional choice award winner in the Northwest, South Central and Southwest regions

Princesse Charlene de Monaco, a fragrance award winner; and

Wedding Bells, a regional choice award winner in the Northwest, Southeast and South Central regions.

All roses entered into the AGRS are tested for two years in six different geographical regions, each containing two test gardens. Additional characteristics that are evaluated include: vigor, foliage proportion, plant habit, flowering effect, rebloom habit, bloom form, aging quality of blooms, fragrance, and hardiness. In order for a variety to be granted an award, it must average at least 80 out of 100 points in at least three regions.
