Our Company

Star® Roses and Plants has been bringing great plants to the world’s gardens® since 1897.

Our long-standing relationships with breeders all over the world have allowed us to bring some of the most revolutionary plants to market. From the Peace Rose to the Knock Out® Rose, and from the Blue and China Girl Hollies to Akadama™ Hydrangea, our goal is to identify, develop and introduce plants that offer unique or notable features and performance.   

Many notable roses, shrubs and perennials have been introduced by Star® Roses and Plants, but one of the most impressive to date is The Knock Out® Family of Roses. Introduced in 2000, this family of extremely floriferous, low-maintenance shrub roses revolutionized the way we think of roses. Equally impressive is a collection of modern, groundcover roses, Drift® Roses, which offer a more compact, re-blooming solution to gardens of all sizes. With more to offer than just roses, Star® Roses and Plants also has breakthrough woody plants. From standout varieties in the landscape like Peach Perfection® Abelia and breakthrough, game-changing trees like Flame Thrower® Cercis and Golden Falls® Cercis, we are constantly striving for excellence in how we evaluate, trial and bring plants to market. The Bushel and Berry® series is a collection of compact, self-pollinating, berry plants for the home garden. These blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries are easy to grow and easy to love! Last, but certainly not least, Bloomables® is a collection comprised of our best flowering roses, shrubs and perennials that allow you to have a garden that blooms all season long.  

At Star® Roses and Plants, we have a family of brands, but we also have a family of co-workers and colleagues that share the collective vision of bringing breakthrough plants and programs to market so that the growing, sales, retail and gardening experience is one that we can all benefit from.
