ABOUT Star Roses & Plants
Over 75 years ago, Robert Pyle laid the foundation that still exists at Star® Roses and Plants today: A beautiful garden begins with exceptional plants. By establishing friendships with nurseries and hybridizers all over the world, Pyle expanded our horticultural palette. These friendships have allowed us to work with some of the world's most innovative nurseries to introduce plants that have passed the ultimate test — the rigorous and diverse American climate. We spend years evaluating, testing and caring for each plant before it even reaches you. We're confident that you'll love Star® Roses and Plants as much as we do.
We are excited to welcome back to the Rose Chat Podcast Kristen Smith of Star Roses and Plants to talk about Star's new rose introductions for 2014!

Internationally acclaimed rosarian Jacques Ferare from Star Roses & Plants joins us to chat about Drift Roses.
Drift® Roses are a cross between full-size groundcover roses and miniature roses. From the former they kept toughness, disease resistance and winter hardiness. From the miniatures, they inherited their well-managed size and repeat-blooming nature.
Continuously blooming from spring to frost (bloom cycle about every 5-6 weeks), they are naturally dwarf, with very attractive foliage. They are winter hardy to zone 4.
Drift® Roses range in size from 2-3' wide x 1 1/2' tall. The low, manageable habit of Drift® Roses makes them perfect for small gardens, hillsides, perennial beds and even awkward areas. They brighten up borders and fill in empty spaces around your favorite established plants.

STEVE HUTTON - President & CEO Star Roses & Plants
Steve Hutton, president and CEO of Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle, is a third-generation nurseryman. At age of 12 he had his first paying job in the industry—following a number of non-paying jobs—selling pansies that he and his brothers grew to the garden center Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle had at the time.
After graduating from Earlham College with a degree in English literature, Hutton sought practical industry experience at a number of different nursery establishments. He worked in a cut rose operation, E.G. Hill, then for a year at a foliage plant nursery, Oakdell, Inc., in Apopka, Florida. His final stop was as a trainee at the world-renowned French rose breeding operation, Meilland International.
When he returned to Star® Roses and Plants/Conard-Pyle in 1978, his first job was routing trucks during the spring shipping season. He later held positions as head of the license department, vice president of production and, finally, president of the company.
Hutton is a past president of All America Rose Selections, president of the National Association of Plant Patent Owners, member of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society’s Gold Medal Award Committee, member of the board of The Wholesale Nursery Growers of America and member of the International Plant Propagators’ Society. Additionally, he holds board positions in several local nonprofit organizations.

Welcome back for another episode of The Star Chamber Show! With Imaginarium right around the corner we've invited in a new pair of guests, Authors Joann Buchanan and Tiffini Johnson. Both ladies will be appearing all weekend, but stop on by for a preview of the main event!
About Joann Buchanan:
I think we are like the universes conduits, and all that energy that’s floating around is made up of various stories. We listen, we pluck the stories from the sky, every particle has a tale and every tale a price…I think as writers, we are only telling what is already there.
I’m the mom of five children and have a wonderful husband who supports my passion for the written word. I own a small audiobook company called Empire Voices, we create theatrical audiobooks. Stop off at empirevoices.com for information.
About Tiffini Johnson:
Award-winning author Tiffini Johnson’s love of the written word started early: she wrote her first story at age 8. By the 4th grade, she was reading books aloud to classmates and by high school graduation, she had written over 100 books, many of which were over 2,000 handwritten pages long! Today, she is the author of 7 published books.
Tiffini is the recipient of the prestigious Who’s Who Award and the author of the award-winning, critically acclaimed, “The Character” and “Broken.” A relational activist at heart, Tiffini writes on social issues she is passionate about, including child abuse, the Holocaust and teen suicide. She travels all over the United States, speaking as a RAINN survivor. Her poetry has been prominently featured in multiple anthologies and two of her books are required reading in high schools and college psychology courses.

Michelle Endersby - Awakening Around Roses
Growing up in Montmorency in the natural bushland beauty of the Eltham Shire where art and the environment were interconnected, Michelle developed at an early age a sense of wonder in the natural world and it is this that she wants to share through my art. She see's personality in individual plants and flowers which sometimes makes my florals or nature studies seem more like portraits than traditional florals.
Michelle wants her audience to get swept up by the magic that she see's, and feel emotion and intimacy towards her painting subjects. A lifelong interest and involvement with textiles drives her to explore the textural properties of her subjects be that the velvety petal of a rose or the meandering root systems of ancient Moreton Bay Fig Trees.
"A brush with death changed my life and strengthened my career as an artist. On awakening from a coma following emergency brain surgery to repair a ruptured blood vessel, I was presented with an inspirational vision. I found myself in a beautiful, light-filled rose garden and this vision hastened my recovery and illuminated my path forward. This incident has made me see the world through different eyes. I see beauty surrounding me and I want to share my vision with the world."
