JAPANESE TREE LILAC     Syringa reticulata

The Japanese Tree Lilac is the only lilac we have that grows like a small tree. It is very showy and does not sucker. When in bloom, it draws a lot of attention.

Small Tree: Height 4m (13ft); usually has an informal, bonsai appearance--thus the Japanese part of the name. It refuses to grow straight.

Foliage: Course, medium green foliage typical of the lilacs.

Flowers: Large, very showy trusses of creamy white flowers. Blooms in late June, early July.

Comments: This small tree is worthy of much wider use. It is much later blooming than all the other lilacs. After the apples and maydays are finished blooming for almost a month the Japanese Tree Lilac comes into its glory. Ideal along a back or side fence.
