White lilac with double blooms and very fragrant. Flowers have a touch of pink, turning white in full bloom.
Bred in Russia by hybridist Leonid Kolesnikov.
Said to be very resistant to pests and disease. Reaches 15′ high and spreads 6-12′ wide, though I’ve had mine for 3 years and it is just a whispy stick or two.
The photo is the total bloom production for the year.
Ideal for zones 3-7. this lilac takes full sun to partial shade.
If you are looking for deer resistant shrubs, choose a lilac.
