The Peking Lilac, Syringa pekinensis, is a large shrub (or small tree) with a growth habit that is multi-stemmed, spreading, and informal. Its foliage is typical of lilacs with a summer green color, but no fall color.
‘Peking’ has showy clusters of pure white flowers on 3 to 6 inch panicles. More trouble-free than the common shrub lilac, ‘Peking’ Lilac doesn't produce suckers, seldom suffers from disease and requires little pruning.
This multi-trunk tree has an upright, arching form and rich-brown, peeling bark that looks great in winter. ‘Peking’ does best in full sun in any loose, well-drained soil. Allow enough space for good air circulation.
This robust tree is tough enough to withstand challenging environments. ‘Peking’ Lilac will be a strong performer in your yard!
