The decision as to which plants are highlighted in Texas Superstar® marketing campaigns is made by the Texas Superstar® Executive Board (Tim Davis — College Station; Mike Arnold — College Station; Dan Lineberger — College Station; Cynthia McKenney — Lubbock; Brent Pemberton — Overton; Larry Stein — Uvalde; David Rodriguez — San Antonio). The board typically plans marketing campaigns at least two to three years in advance. Advisory input is received from the representatives, county horticulturists, arboretum and botanical garden representatives, horticultural writers, and landscape designers.
The Executive Board’s decision as to which plants should be highlighted is primarily based upon observations made at replicated plots and demonstration trials across the state. In some cases, recommendations made by university horticulturists in other southern states are also considered. Because ornamental plant performance can be rather subjective, the board gathers as much input as possible from competent horticulturists who understand the importance of both landscape performance and marketability. Another important factor considered when selecting plants for educational and marketing campaigns is whether sufficient numbers of plants can be produced to meet the increased consumer demand generated by Texas Superstar® efforts.
Texas Superstar® plants are tested and selected for their superstar performance in the Texas landscape. To make it easy to locate retail nurseries and landscape contractors in your area who stock Texas Superstar plants, they have created a searchable Texas Superstar® Sales Team Database.
