Lilac - Syringa vulgaris
- ‘Of all the flowers that I see, the sweetest is the lay-luck tree.’ Anon
Usually pronounced lie-lc, lie-lek. The Lilac tree is both fragrant and is said to bring good luck to a household when it is planted in the garden. The purple is known for its strongest fragrance but all varieties are popular. This is a picture of my white Lilac as yet my purple variety has not flowered this year.
