Syringa x prestoniae James Macfarlane

NEW! Syringa x prestoniae James Macfarlane

Rosy purple buds open to clear pink, fragrant flowers in late May to early June (about two weeks after the Common Lilac varieties). Plants are very hardy with excellent mildrew resistance, and are a good addition to any mixed border. 'James Macfarlane' is one of the very hardy Preston hybrids, S. x prestoniae, and is a cross between the late-blooming S. villosa and S. reflexa. Mr. Macfarlane was the horticulturist at University of New Hampshire from 1915-1949.

Lilacs are among the best-known classic spring-flowering shrubs. For reliable bloom and sweet fragrance, generally before Memorial Day, these sturdy shrubs are in a class by themselves. Most Lilacs prefer full sun and neutral to slightly alkaline soil.
