(Baibelle Liliac, Lilac)

Denser, smaller, daintier, and more pest and disease resistant than common lilac, Tinkerbelle™ is one of a new generation of lilac hybrids that is a good fit for the average yard. It results from a cross made in Holland between two outstanding "small-leaved" lilacs, Syringa meyeri ‘Palibin' and Syringa pubescens ssp. microphylla ‘Superba’. The conical clusters of spicily scented pale pink blooms open from beautifully contrasting purple-red buds in mid-spring, and sometimes...

(Chinese Lilac)

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...

The cultivar 'Lilac Sunday' bears particular abundant clusters of fragrant purple flowers. They crowd the upper reaches of the branches in mid- or late spring, slightly earlier than those of common lilac. The blooms attract butterflies, hummingbirds,...

(Lilac)

Rarely grown in gardens except in one of its variegated or yellow-leaved forms, this Himalayan native is a tall shrub with stout upright stems. In late spring it bears branching, somewhat ragged-looking clusters of white or pale lilac flowers. They have a musky fragrance that is sometimes considered objectionable. Handsome large leaves with silvery undersides are among the last to emerge in spring and to drop in fall. Cultivars include 'Elegantissima', with yellow-margined leaves, and gold-leaved...

(Early-flowering Lilac)

An early-blooming hardy lilac, early-flowering lilac is a hybrid between common lilac (Syringa vulgaris) and the East-Asian native Syringa oblata. Many lovely cultivars exist. The French nurseryman Victor Lemoine introduced the first ('Hyacinthiflora Plena') in 1878 followed by many more introductions, such as the pink-flowered 'Buffon.' The first American Syringa x hyacinthiflora cultivars were developed by Walter Clarke of San Jose, California, and by Frank...

(Anabel Early-flowering Lilac, Early-flowering Lilac)

The very early, double flowered 'Anabel' is a beautiful, vigorous selection that was bred in 1956 by Roy F. Hawkins of La Port City, Iowa. It is a classic variety that’s stood the test of time and is still easy to find in the nursery trade. The name is often misspelled as 'Annabel.'

Early-flowering lilac is a hybrid between common lilac (Syringa vulgaris) and the East-Asian native Syringa oblata. It resembles the common lilac, forming large rather open oval-leaved shrubs that...

(Early-flowering Lilac)

One of the earliest-flowering lilacs, Syringa x hyacinthiflora is the hybrid between common lilac (Syringa vulgaris) and the East Asian native Syringa oblata. Selected in 1981 by lilac guru John Fiala, 'Blanche Sweet' bears large conical clusters of fragrant chalky-blue, pink-tinged flowers at its branch tips from early to mid-spring, a week or more before common lilac blooms. It forms a rather open medium-sized shrub with oval mid-green leaves.
