Common Purple Lilac

This old-fashioned lilac is the one most of us remember from our youth. A perfect informal hedge or screen, it has extremely fragrant, purple flowers in May. Color may vary from purple to lilac and occasionally even white. The cut flowers hold up very well, and easily fill a house with their fragrance. Rarely to never fed on by Japanese beetles.
