Syringa x prestoniae 'Miss Canada'

Deciduous, Shrubs


A garden staple in cold-winter regions, cherished for big, flamboyant, fragrant flower clusters at branch tips. Most lilacs bloom best in areas with decidedly chilly winters, but some perform quite well with only light winter chill.

Syringa x prestoniae

Group of extra-hardy hybrids developed in Canada. 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.

'Miss Canada'

Bright pink flowers.
