[ Common Lilac (Syringa vulgaris 'Primrose') | Posted on May 15, 2018 ]

"Syringa 'Primrose', Yellow Lilac, , USDA Hardiness Zone 3, Creamy Yellow, Michigan Bloom Month 5.

Unusual yellow flowered lilac. Introduced in 1949, Primrose bears numerous graceful, yet dense panicles of pastel yellow flowers in mid-spring. Won a Royal Horticulture Society Award of Merit in 1950. Usually more cream or creamy-yellow. In some cases, it only appears unique when grown amidst white-flowered plants for contrast. Planted in 2013. No blooms in 2014 or 15. My guess is that this plant will be like my 'Claire de lune' peony, WHITE."
