This lilac was discovered by Frank N. Meyerin near Beijing, China in 1909 and has never been observed in the wild, leading to the belief that it is a hybrid. Growth habit is full and evenly shaped from a young age with small, wavy, dark green leaves. Fragrant lavender flower clusters bloom in May (not early May) from establishment and annually onward. This lilac is not as xeric as some others, but it is such a handy size and blooms well with less than full sun that we recommend it heartily.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
