(Chinese-Hungarian Lilac, James MacFarlane Lilac)

This vigorous lilac is distinguished by very large conical panicles of flowers that are purple-red in bud and open to lavender pink. These fragrant blooms appear in early summer atop upright, bushy shrubs with lance-shaped, medium green leaves. Like most lilacs, these set the following year's flower buds shortly after flowering, so plants should be pruned directly after they bloom.

James MacFarlane lilac grows best in full sun and average well-drained soil. It makes a fine feature plant and is...

(Cutleaf Lilac, Laciniate-leaved Lilac)

This small graceful shrub is in fact a hybrid of common lilac, Syringa vulgaris, and a parent of the beautiful Persian lilac, Syringa x persica. Its airy conical flower clusters appear in mid- to late-spring, a few days after those of common lilac. Unlike common lilac, however, it offers considerable ornamental interest after it blooms, forming a chest-high...
