Star Roses and Plants winners included:

  • ‘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.

According to AGRS, all roses entered into the program are tested for two years in six different geographical regions, each containing two test gardens. Additional characteristics evaluated include: vigor, foliage proportion, plant habit, flowering effect, re-bloom habit, bloom form, aging quality of blooms, fragrance, and hardiness.

FYI: 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.
