Syringa vulgaris 12x12' Marie Legraye x open pollinated. Victor Lemoine et Fils, Nancy, France, 1890.
The standard by which other white lilacs are judged. Very fragrant large pure white double flowers in clusters so thick the shrub looks like one massive bloom.
Slightly open wide-growing shrub. Provides a beautiful accent for the pinks and purples.
A favorite of the late plantsman Roger Luce of Newburgh, ME, who maintained a magnificent collection of lilacs for many years. Z3. (1-3' bare-root plants)

Plant in a sunny (at least 6 hours of sunlight each day) well-drained location in moderately rich soil; sandy gravelly loam is perfect. Pink, lavender and blue lilacs color up best in soil with a neutral pH. Spacing depends on your plan; lilacs perform well as hedges as well as specimens.
