    ALL-AMERICA ROSE SELECTIONS KICKS OFF ITS FIRST "DESIGNING WITH ROSES" COMPETITION FOR PROFESSIONAL AND STUDENT LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS AND DESIGNERS

    Innovative, rose-centric entries to receive national recognition

    SAN FRANCISCO, Mar. 20, 2006 - All-America Rose Selections(TM)
    (AARS(TM)) has opened its Designing with Roses Competition to recognize
    and honor excellence in landscape architecture and garden design by both
    professionals and students. The AARS is currently accepting entries for
    2006 through July 7.

    AARS will judge entries on design excellence, execution and creativity
    in the fields of landscape architecture and garden design. The call for
    entries extends to a broad scope of landscapes, from commercial
    properties including hospitals, corporate complexes, and university
    grounds, to private estates and homes. To honor the AARS' mission of
    introducing and promoting exceptional roses, all submissions must
    incorporate U.S. roses as a primary design element.

    Winning entries will be selected by a jury of experts including members
    of the AARS, members from the American Society of Landscape Architects
    and garden writers from trade and consumer gardening publications.
    Selected winners will be announced and honored in August 2006 at the
    58th annual Garden Writers Association symposium in Valley Forge, Penn.

    First place for professional design includes a trip for two to the 2007
    Pasadena Tournament of Roses parade in January 2007; students' designs
    will be honored with cash prizes totaling $1,750. Second and third
    place professional selections will also be awarded and all finalists
    will be publicized in a variety of industry publications including the
    AARS newsletter and web site, ASLA related newsletters, as well as other
    landscape trade and general interest garden publications.

    "Landscaping professionals dedicate their lives to the creation of
    beautiful spaces," says AARS president Steve Hutton. "We're very excited
    about this competition because it enables us to recognize two of our
    organization's passions: supporting the amazing work of these talented
    individuals, and showing that roses, now easier to grow than ever, can
    be at the forefront of design."
