Lilac, China Snow Pekin

Regular price $729.99 Save $-729.99

China Snow is an underutilized all-season ornamental tree with beautiful flowers, foliage and bark. Showy creamy white flower panicles at the branch tips emerge in early summer. The fragrance is privet-like. Dark green, disease free leaves turn yellow in fall. The leaves and stems are smaller and finer than Japanese tree lilac's, giving this tree a more refined appearance. Outstanding amber-cherry-red exfoliating bark can be admired year round. Makes a superb accent tree near the patio or in the front yard.
