“EARTH-KIND®” is one of the most prestigious plant designations bestowed by the Texas AgriLife Extention Service. It is based on years of extensive field research conducted by Texas A&M horticultural experts. Only a few, very special cultivars (i.e. “varieties”) possess the extremely high levels of landscape performance coupled with the outstanding disease and insect tolerance/resistance that are required in order to receive this designation.

Our site will focus on current rose research and will eventually expand to include EARTH-KIND® perennials and EARTH-KIND® shrubs when those trials begin. It will be a clearing house for information Perle d'Orand questions about EARTH-KIND® principles and highlight the different trial gardens around the state and the country and the people who are working hard to make them successful.EARTH-KIND® is a registered proprietary trademark of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, on file with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office since 1991.
