Blue Skies Lilac Vs. Big Blue Lilac - Knowledgebase Question

San Dimas, CA
Question by BBasu

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.

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.
