Cold Weather Isn't Bothering the Lilacs

May 13, 2013

Rochester's Lilacs are going to be in good condition throughout the festival, according to Monroe County Parks Superintendent of Horticulture, Mark Quinn.
He says they were at peak bloom at the start of the festival, and tonight's predicted freeze won't damage the lilacs.
He says the cold weather actually holds the bloom for a longer period of time.
Quinn says he doesn't remember seeing a bloom that looks any better than this one.
The Rochester Lilac Festival runs through Sunday.
