First Editions Snowdance Japanese Tree Lilac
Syringa reticulata ‘Bailnce’ PP20,458
Although the species tend to flower biennially, Snowdance™ flowers well annually and begins flowering at an earlier age than the species. It has exceptionally heavy bloom with large, fragrant, creamy white flower clusters in June. This variety produces few untidy brown seedheads. Lustrous dark green foliage is slightly larger and darker than the species. Snowdance™ grows as wide as it is tall with attractive, shelved branching. A pest-and-disease-free lilac tree, it is ideal for residential and park use and is equally attractive as a specimen as it is in group plantings. Selected by Rod Bailey for its remarkably heavy bloom.
