Positive lmelling On May 13, 2005, lmelling from Ithaca, NY (Zone 5b) wrote:

Very hardy, fragrant and beautiful cultivar. Dependable flowering when planted in correct location. Forms a rounded shrub and is covered in spring with single white flowers. Blooms several days before the other French Hybrids. Leaves turn purplish in fall. Height 10'-12" spread 10'-12'.

Note. I had this planted for two years in a spot where it had some shading in afternoon and it did not bloom nor grow well. I moved it the fall of the second year to it's present spot and it has taken off. This lilac definitely needs full sun and can handle a hot, well-drained spot during the summer in the north.
