Syringa x hyacinthiflora8x10' S. vulgaris x S. oblata dilatata. Dr. Frank L. Skinner intro, Dropmore, Manitoba, Canada, 1961.
Prolific single heavily fragrant lovely showy white blooms. One of Roger Luce’s favorites. Roger was one of Maine’s great 20th-c. plant people. His lilac collection near Bangor was unsurpassed for its time. John had the opportunity to observe this lilac in bloom during a visit with Roger many years ago. Of the lilac, Roger simply commented, “Lovely white.” Indeed it is. Large shrub blooms about 2 weeks before most other lilacs. Extremely hardy. Z2/3. (1–3')

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.
