About Lilac flowers

Lilacs, belonging to the genus Syringa.

They are popular deciduous shrubs or small trees known for their fragrant and attractive flowers.

For example, there are approximately 25 species in the Syringa genus.

The common lilac is the most widely recognized.

Lilacs typically grow between 6 to 20 feet in height which depends on the species and cultivar.

In addition, they have heart-shaped leaves and bear large clusters of small, tubular flowers.

The flowers are most commonly found in shades of purple and lilac.

Likewise, they can also be white, pink, or even yellow.
