    Lilac 'Old Glory'

    The Syringa vulgaris (common lilac) naturally occurred on the mountains of Southeastern Europe, spreading throughout Western European gardens and eventually reaching North America in the 18th century. And explorers later sending home samples and seed of Syringa meyeri (Korean lilac) specimens discovered on their expeditions shedding a light on new species of lilacs. Their increase in popularity inspired European and American nurserymen and horticulturist to breed and collect cultivars with the brightest, largest, most colorful and strongly scented blooms.
