The Q&A Archives: Need A Name Of Flower

Question: I am lost on a flower that I saw, but can't find the name? It is purple or white in color and grows on a large bush. It blooms only in the spring and the smell is uncomparable to any other. Please help and if you can think of one name or a few names of flowers that come to mind. Please help, this is driving me crazy.

Answer: Based on your description I would have to guess lilac (Syringa vulgaris) which is wonderfully fragrant when in bloom. I hope that's right!
