Texas Superstar® Plants
Texas Superstar® – Strong & Stunning Plants for Texans
Texas Superstar® plants are tested and selected for superior performance. It isn’t easy to become a Texas Superstar®. Only the toughest, most reliable and best looking plants make the cut.
Every plant earning the Texas Superstar® designation undergoes several years of extensive field trials by Texas A&M AgriLife Research and the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, both part of the Texas A&M System.
One of the keys to the success of the Texas Superstar® program is the quality and reliability of the plant material that is highlighted in educational and marketing campaigns. Every effort is made to ensure that highlighted plants will perform well for Texas consumers. Wherever appropriate, limitations to highlighted plants are mentioned during marketing campaigns. Additionally, cultural information is provided to give the consumer guidance regarding proper plant care.
A plant must show superior performance under Texas’ tough growing conditions. During the field trials, plants receive minimal soil preparation, reasonable levels of water and no pesticides.
What does this mean to the average homeowner? It means you will find landscape success with beautiful, proven, Texas-tough plants. There are more than 70 plants — including trees, shrubs, annuals, perennials and vegetables — deemed worthy of the Texas Superstar® rating.
Texas Superstar® plants are available at retail nurseries. Be sure to look for the Texas Superstar® logo on the plant tags.
