NHGC Gives Flower Carpet Rose Seal Of Approval
‘Flower Carpet Pink Supreme’ rose earned a 96 percent approval rating in a nationwide consumer test and, consequently, earned the National Home Garden Club (NHGC) seal of approval. Pink Supreme now has the rights to carry the NHGC seal of approval on its packaging and in its advertising.
The results were announced in the January-February 2009 issue of the NHGC’s official magazine, Gardening How-To. “This is a great endorsement from the people who are most important: gardeners,” says Anthony Tesselaar, president of Tesselaar Plants, which introduced Flower Carpet roses in the United States. “Pink Supreme is one of the Next Generation Flower Carpets, with 20 years advanced breeding.”
Flower Carpet Pink Supreme is the second Next Generation Flower Carpet groundcover rose to receive the NHGC seal. In 2007, ‘Flower Carpet Scarlet’ received the honor, earning a 90 percent approval rating.
