‘Flower Carpet Pink Supreme’ Earns Top HonorSource: Anthony Tesselaar Plants

Pink Supreme is now the seventh Flower Carpet rose to win Germany’s coveted All Deutschland Rose designation. One of Flower Carpet’s three new “Next Generation” roses, Pink Supreme also scored high in the Dallas Arboretum’s 2010 plant trials.

Pink Supreme is now the seventh Flower Carpet rose to win Germany’s coveted All Deutschland Rose (ADR) designation. One of Flower Carpet’s three new “Next Generation” roses (with an additional 15 years of breeding for heat and humidity), Pink Supreme also scored high in the Dallas Arboretum’s 2010 plant trials (known for putting plants to the ultimate test in extreme heat and humidity).

Anthony Tesselaar is particularly pleased with the ADR designation for Pink Supreme, which is now the third of the Flower Carpet line’s “Next Generation” roses to win the award (along with Scarlet and Amber). The original line’s Pink, White, Scarlet and Yellow have also won the designation. The ADR trials are conducted over the course of three years at a number of different test sites, each enforcing the ADR program’s famous ban on spraying or other chemical support. “We all know these are important measures as we look to minimize our impact on the environment,” said Anthony Tesselaar.

Pink Supreme also earned high marks in the Dallas Arboretum’s 2010 Trial program. “Our tagline is ‘Trial By Flower – If We Can’t Kill It, No One Can,'” said Jimmy Turner, the Dallas Arboretum’s senior director of gardens. The arboretum’s trial program annually tests 4,000 annuals, bulbs, perennials, trees and shrubs in search of the “toughest plants alive.”
