Japanese Tree Lilac vs Manchurian Lilac

Syringa reticulata

Syringa pubescens ssp. patula

Japanese Tree Lilac
Manchurian Lilac

Japanese Tree Lilac is an attractive heavy-flowering lilac with fragrant white blossoms. It can be pruned to a single stem or grown as a multi-stemmed shrub.

Japanese Tree Lilac's dark reddish-brown bark peels as the tree ages, creating visual appeal for any yard, especially in the winter.

Manchurian Lilac is a medium-sized shrub that features fragrant clusters of pale purple flowers in late spring.

Manchurian Lilac is less affected by disease than other lilacs and will create a beautiful border, hedge, or privacy screen. If you are looking for a lilac for your shelterbelt, consider Common Purple Lilac or Villosa Lilac first.
