Rose Trials Tribulations

sandandsun(9a FL)December 7, 2012

I was looking at the AARS selection list and perusing the site when I ended up in the press releases and found the one linked below. It seems to be a "don't say we didn't tell you" if only subtly kind of announcement. "Though AARS will continue to operate through the introduction of its 2013 Winners...." -H. Conklin.

Then there is the announcement in Paul Zimmerman's blog in the link below that AARS is no more. And introducing AGRS.

This caused me to wonder about Earth-Kind. In the link below, we see that Earth-Kind hasn't announced a new E-K rose in two years. Do the E-K trials still exist?
