‘Flower City’, single violet 10 violet-purple, ‘Rochester x ‘Madame Charles Souchet’, 1983
Father John Fiala considered this one of Dick Fenicchia’s finest hybrids. It displays single violet blooms with radial doubling, and the cup-shaped florets also reveal a showy silvery reverse side. Usually it is an upright grower, and can show vigorous growth after pruning or damage. A ‘Flower City’ at Highland Park, after severe winter storm damage, has resprouted with much strong new growth. Named after Rochester, New York, which is often referred to now as the flower city.
