MANHATTAN, N.Y. - Oct. 2, 2023 - PRLog -- The American Garden Rose Selections (AGRS™), the leading organization dedicated to promoting exceptional garden roses, is thrilled to announce the winners of its highly anticipated 2024 AGRS™ garden rose selections. The winning roses embody all the characteristic's that consumers desire in a garden plant: beauty, fragrance, disease resistance and of course, minimal maintenance. These traits are the hallmark of the American Garden Rose Selections testing program, and we are proud to announce our selections for 2024.
The 2024 AGRS™ winners are:
"These winning roses truly represent the epitome of beauty, fragrance, and resilience,"
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 fragrance.
All roses entered into the AGRS™ are tested for two years in six different geographical regions, each containing at least 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 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 want to 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.
