Donald Wyman Lilac, Syringa x prestoniae 'Donald Wyman', has purple buds that open to single, red-purple fragrant flowers in early to mid-June. This hardy, upright growing Canadian Lilac blooms two weeks later than Common Lilacs. The flowers on the panicles tend to be finer and more delicate than those on other lilacs, and its fragrance is more spicy too. It makes an excellent specimen or hedge planting. This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds and requires average water needs; water regularly; do not overwater. Donald Wyman Lilac prefers full sun, good drainage and air circulation. It tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun. It can be used in many situations, including shrub borders, informal hedges and perennial borders. Being very showy and fragrant, it makes a wonderful screen or border specimen and grows 8-10 feet tall and 4-10 feet wide.

Small lilac Review by Mandee
My Donald Wyman lilac is much smaller that the common purple lilac. It does not overwhelm my back yard. To me the flower color is close to the same.
Perfect round shape full of blooms! Review by Ericka Bradbury
Couldn't tell you if mine had more blooms or butterflies on it! Performs perfectly every year with no problems at all after our cold harsh Maine winters. I recommend taking ten minutes to snip off the spent blooms to encourage the next years blooming.
