The Star Roses and Plants winners are:
- Peach Keen, a Regional winner in six out of six geographical regions in the U.S. This is the only rose to ever win all six regions.
- Icecap, a Regional winner in five out of six regions. This is the first introduction resulting from the Meidiland/Radler collaboration.
- Tahitian Treasure, a Regional winner in three out of six regions.
All roses entered for the AGRS are tested for two years in six different geographical zones, 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 zones.
