American Garden Rose Selections™ Announces 2022 Winners
Four roses take home honors in national testing program that recognizes roses on a regional basis
By: American Garden Rose Selections™
The AGRS™ testing program recognizes roses that are easy to care for, disease-resistant, and suitable for different regions of the country. In addition, awards are given for fragrance to help guide consumers who desire roses for their scent.
The 2022 AGRS™ Winners are:
All roses entered into the AGRS™ program 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, the rose must demonstrate superior performance in at least three (3) of the six (6) regions entered.
By recognizing and recommending the best garden-worthy rose varieties for the various regions of the United States through testing, the AGRS™ has the goal of providing objective and reliable information to the general public.
We invite you to visit your local home and garden center or online retailer and try these new varieties this Spring. We think you'll be very pleased.
