English: The Gold Standard ® is a rose award granted in the Gold Standard Trials, conducted by the British Association of Rose Breeders (BARB) and the National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB). A fee is payed for each submitted variety, which is then tested and judged throughout a two year trial period. The first trials took place between 2006 (with roses planted in 2004 and judged during 2005 and 2006).
