'Rochester' is the incredible single yet multi-petalled white lilac, a seedling of 'Edith Cavell', selected by Alvan Grant and Bernard Harkness at Rochester's Highland Botanical Park. Pictures do not do it justice; it deserves two. This is very rare and not easy to propagate. It's slow growing, generally has weak roots, and is on the small side. Mid-season. Grant 1971. Syringa vulgaris 'Rochester'. Very limited supply, one per customer only, please.
Minimum shipping/handling charge is $20 for orders up to $50. Shipping for orders of $50 to $100 is $25. Orders over $100 will be charged 25% of the order amount to cover shipping and handling.
