Syringa vulgaris

This very "Common" Lilac is seen gracing landscapes in late spring and is a long-time gardening favorite.  The plant is extremely floriferous with very fragrant, sweetly scented, lilac bunches for your indoor floral arrangements. The pleasantly fragrant smell of the lavender flower panicles drift across the lawn in spring, filling the whole area with it's pleasant scent. Very hardy, deciduous shrub with a heavily suckering, irregularly shaped habit. Bluish green foliage is somewhat heart shaped.  Excellent corner plant or when planted as a hedge.  Outstanding as a cut flower for fresh bouquets.
