Japanese Lilacs #ThursdayTreeLove

Now blooming, where I live in upstate New York, are these beautiful landscape trees.

These Japanese lilacs, Latin name Syringa reticulata, bloom later than the "traditional" lilacs of May, but are welcome as there aren't too many blooming trees right now after the great rush of late spring.

Here's another closeup picture.  Rather than a bush, they grow as a tree, growing up over 25 feet (7.6 meters) tall.

A beautiful blue sky from Tuesday shows one off.
This year, I think they are going to have a fantastic blooming season.  These trees are very hardy and thrive in our climate zone.
Join Parul and other tree loving bloggers each second and fourth Thursday of the month, for #ThursdayTreeLove.


  1. Do they smell as heavenly as regular May Lilacs? Because they are equally as beautiful!

  2. I never heard of these "tree' lilacs. Thanks for the share.

  3. That last shot is great. I don't know if I've ever seen that tree before. Our Jacardanas are dropping little purple flowers all over the place.

  4. Wow! These species are new to me... Wonderful getting acquainted with them via your posts :-)

  5. I have never seen these and I love that these are blooming trees. So wonderful of you to show us how the tree full with flowers looks and the flowers. I would love to click them some day :)
    Thank you for joining!
