West Grove, Pa. — Star Roses and Plants is excited to announce it recently won seven out of 11 awards from The American Rose Trials for Sustainability (A.R.T.S.) program. A.R.T.S. identifies the most sustainable, hardy, pest-resistant and beautiful rose cultivars for use in American landscapes and gardens.

Eleven roses earned A.R.T.S. awards for 2019: eight A.R.T.S. Master Rose awards and three A.R.T.S. Local Artist awards. For each region in which a trial rose meets the performance threshold, it earns an A.R.T.S. Local Artist award. If a rose earns a Local Artist award in four or more regions, it is designated as an A.R.T.S. Master Rose, the highest award honoring the rose’s wider range of adaptability.
