What does it take to be become a Superstar® plant?

It isn’t easy to become a Texas Superstar® plant.  Only the toughest, most reliable and best-looking plants make the cut.  Every plant earning the Texas Superstar® designation undergo several years of intensive field trials by both Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.  During these field trials, plants receive minimal inputs in regard to soil preparation, levels of water, pesticides and simply must perform and look aesthetically pleasing under harsh and variable Texas growing conditions.

What does this mean to the average homeowner? 

It means landscape success with beautiful, proven Texas-tough plants.
