Japanese Lilac Tree, Ivory Silk

Syringa reticulata 'Ivory Silk'


Description

Tolerant of urban conditions and sunny conditions. It's mature size makes this a great option for a street tree.

Japanese tree lilacs are part of the wider Lilac family and are related to the familiar European and Korean lilacs that are landscape staples in northern Utah. However, unlike their cousins, these lilacs grow into more of a tree orientation, either groomed into a single trunk or manicured as a multiple trunk specimen. Their bloom time is different too, with large panicles of fragrant, creamy white to ivory yellow flowers opening in the first week of June. Another unique feature is their tendency to have speckled, exfoliating bark.
