    A major feature of the landscaping in our small town:Syringa Reticulata!

    Posted by Robert Stiiiweii on 10th Jul 2013


    My order for the Japanese Tree Lilac seeds arrived quickly and as described. In my small town, there are dozens of Syringa Reticulata trees of various sizes and age which were cultivated either privately
    or in a town/college co-operative effort. They all combine to create
    a tremendous late springtime display throughout our town. With your seeds I am confidant I will soon become a generous contributor to this
    magnificant display. Perhaps some day there will be photos to share.
    I am pleased to extend to you my great thanks.
