Purple Syringa Flower

Syringa


Very well known as lilacs, this genus in the olive (Oleaceae) family flower is made up of 23 species of deciduous shrubs that blossom from spring to early summer and are famed for their fragrance. Most of them are natively from temperate Asia, but there are also two European species, one of which is the usual lilac, Syringa vulgaris, that is a parent of many garden cultivars and hybrids. Lilac foliage is variably shaped and sometimes colors well in autumn. Most species have short-tubed 4-petalled flowers that are clustered in heads sometimes more or sometimes less densely. The flower colors vary a lot from white and soft purple, yellow, through pink and mauve to purple. While lilac is renowned for scent, it also yields dyes: green from the flowers, green and brown from the leaves, and orange-yellow from the stems.

Cultivation


It is very easy to grow Lilies; they only need well-drained, preferably slightly alkaline soil and sun or light shade. Some sucker freely and may need to be contained. There are many ways to propagate Lilies, they may be raised from seed, cultivars from cuttings, layers, or grafts.
