The genus Syringa, commonly known as lilacs, encompasses a group of flowering plants renowned for their aromatic blooms and ornamental value. Lilacs have an incredible late-spring bloom, with thick bunches of tiny white, pink, purple or maroon flowers. Varieties can grow in shrub and tree form, and are generally pest and deer resistant. Lilacs can add the perfect splash of cool color to the garden palette.
