Recommendation of a plant through CEMAP means that the variety has been subjected to statewide testing and been found to be meritorious. These plants are hardy, tolerating the hot dry summers characteristic of most parts of the state. They are disease and insect tolerant, providing beauty with minimal care and minimal reliance on chemical pest control. These plants are designated as "Texas Superstars," and they must display the symbol below on a tag or label at the point of sale.
