(Common Lilac)

The fragrance of an old-fashioned lilac in bloom is aromatherapy at its finest.

Originating in the Botanic Garden at Rouen, France, in 1777, this hybrid of common lilac betters its parent in its dense, graceful, arching, non-suckering habit, its smaller daintier leaves, and its relative tolerance of hot summers and mild winters. Its broad clusters of fragrant purple-lilac flowers crowd the branch tips in mid- or late spring, slightly earlier than those of common lilac. They attract butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees. The narrowly oval medium-green leaves are a third to half...
