The Q&A Archives: Blue Skies Lilac Vs. Big Blue Lilac

Question: I bought a lilac named 'Blue Skies,' is this the same as 'Big Blue?'

When I bought it, the tag didn't mention that it was fragrant, I assumed that all lilacs are fragrant.

Is the variety I have 'Blue Skies' fragrant?

Thank You.

Answer: Blue Skies and Big Blue are Descanso Hybrids, developed for mild winter regions such as yours. Both are fragrant, but some hybrids seems to have a heavier fragrance than others. Your Blue Skies should be wonderfully fragrant.
