Syringa reticulata

Japanese Tree Lilac, Syringa japonica

Perhaps the most popular of all fragrant blooming shrubs, their showy, long flower clusters make excellent cut flowers. Blossoms come in a bluish-lilac color, and many others. Best where winters are freezing, but some varieties bloom with mild cold. Remove dead flowers just above where buds form. Prune lightly to control height and invigorate mature woody plants. Watch for Lilac leaf miner, scale and Lilac borer.
