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