Syringa x prestoniae

Lilac
Oleaceae
Deciduous, Shrubs

Group of extra-hardy hybrids developed in Canada. Grow to 12 ft. tall and wide. Flowers, mostly in shades of pink and lilac, come on new growth at the end of the lilac season, after S. vulgaris has bloomed. Bulky, dense plants resemble S. vulgaris, but individual flowers are smaller and are not as fragrant. Many varieties are available.
