Holden is a variety of Lilac that exemplifies these exceptional shrubs in every way. When other Lilac varieties have completed their bloom, your Albert F. Holden is just beginning!

The flowers are remarkable, with the delicate petals featuring a slight curl at the edges to reveal a silver-toned underside. The effect of the silver against the dark purple petals provides a superior bi-color effect that is particularly showy against the dark green leaves.
