Peking Tree Lilac

Syringa

Syringa reticulata ssp. pekinensis full sun  partial shade

Promising year-round beauty, this small rounded Morton Arboretum selection debuts large fragrant creamy white flowers followed by open clusters of warm brown capsules, artful cinnamon-colored exfoliating bark and attractive dark greenery. Indigenous to northern China's hills and valleys, and named for the distinctive net veining or reticulata that embellishes its ovate leaves, cold-hardy Peking Lilac sculpts an upright multistemmed open frame with courtly arching branches. Ideal for urban settings, except those in the deep south, this star specimen triumphs over clay or deer, and readily flourishes where cool summers, adequate air circulation, average water and slightly acidic rich well-drained soil prevail. Large Band.

Blooms June.

Size: 15' 0"–20' 0" high x 10' 0"–15' 0" wide; hardy to zone 3.
