Syringa vulgaris, also known as the common lilac, is a popular ornamental plant in gardens and parks due to its attractive and sweet-smelling flowers that bloom early in the summer. The plant can be grown as an informal hedge and is often used as a rootstock for various ornamental cultivars of lilac. The essential oil from its flowers is used in perfumery, and the bark and leaves have also been used for medicinal purposes. Its flowers are usually lilac to mauve, occasionally white, and are arranged in dense terminal panicles. This large deciduous shrub or small tree can grow up to 6-7m high and is native to the Balkan Peninsula but has been naturalized in other parts of Europe and America. It is widely naturalized in western and northern Europe, but it is not regarded as an aggressive species. It is an excellent addition to any garden or park and is available in various cultivars, with some still in commerce today.
