Answer: Meyer Lilac is native to China and was introduced here in 1908. It is compact in growth habit, reaching 5'-8' in height and 7'-10' in width. The new leaves have a purplish margin, turning dark green as they mature. It flowers prolifically and early, producing 4" long, 2 1/2" wide clusters of blooms in a violet-purple color. Meyer Lilac is usually grown as a shrub because of its dense, compact growing habit.
