Gorgeous lilac!! I only have the common ones (white, pale, and dark lilac) from my Mom's old garden which I treasure as childhood memories - but wowsie, these newer cultivars are sure stunning. Beautiful photo.

It is a beautiful one but unfortunately died a couple of years ago. I would definitely replace it if I ever find another although for now there is a yellow magnolia in its old spot.
