Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Syringa oblata, Lindl. Shrub or small tree, 12 ft. high, rather compact: lvs. roundish ovate or reniform, often broader than long, cordate, short-acuminate, bright green, their margins usually reddish while young, 2 1/2 – 4 1/2 in. across: fls. pale lilac to purple-lilac, in dense subglobose or pyramidal panicles, 3-5 in. long; pedicels about as long as the distinctly toothed calyx. May. N. China.—Next to the preceding species the earliest to bloom and handsome in fall with its vinous or russet-red foliage. A hybrid with the following species is S. hyacinthiflora, Rehd. Intermediate between the parents, with broadly ovate lvs., turning purplish in fall. Only known in the double form, var. plena, Lemoine. Many or perhaps most of the newer double-fld. varieties have originated by recrossing this form with varieties of S. vulgaris. CH
