Star Roses and Plants, a genetics company involved directly in breeding roses, edibles, perennials and woody plants received awards for two of its top-performing roses 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 landscapes and gardens.

Pretty Polly Lavender is pastel lavender Polyantha Rose with very good disease resistance, cuplike semi-double blooms and excellent flowering from spring through fall.

Sunset Horizon is a Floribunda Rose with flower color that starts bright yellow and fades to deep pink/cherry red. The flower size is quite large when fully open. It has excellent disease resistance and performs well on its own roots.

All roses entered into A.R.T.S. are evaluated under low input conditions using data on the presence of disease and pests, flowering, foliage, plant form, growth habit and general health. To win an award, roses must prove they are resilient on their own merits without being sustained by repeated fertilizer applications or chemical sprays and are based on the regional performance data collected during the trial cycle.
