Texas Superstar plants are specially recognized by Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service for superior performance in tough growing conditions in Texas.
Members of an executive board, advised by horticultural professionals and landscape designers, decide which plants are chosen as Superstars. Each plant must perform well in a variety of landscapes, be easily marketable, and be producible in sufficient numbers to meet consumer demand.
