Japanese Tree Lilac vs Butternut

Syringa reticulata

Juglans cinerea

Japanese Tree Lilac
Butternut

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.

One of the few walnut varieties native to Canada. The wood from this attractive species is used in a lot of specialty products.

A self-fertile nut tree that has better yields with cross-pollination. The meat of the Butternut is very mild, sweet, and oily. Often sought after by nut hunters.

Butternut is intolerant of shade and poor draining soil. It can survive zone 2, but reliably produces nuts in zone 3. Butternut canker has decimated this species in its native range.
