Description

In late May massive clusters of small white flowers open to fill the air with its lilac-lime scented perfume. The bees loved it. The plant itself grows more upright rather than bushy like most if its Syringa kin. I’ve never noticed pest or disease problems nor had to water it during our intense summer drought. I’m sure its tough enough to be used as a street tree. Nice textured bark for winter interest.

If sowing in a baggie, check seed in the fridge for early risers. If germinating in the baggie transplant sprouts as needed.
