Spring is really here now! The lilacs are in full bloom and they smell wonderful.
If you aren't familiar with Red Butte Garden, the majority of our lilacs are located near the bottom of the Floral Walk near the entrance to the new Rose Garden. There are also a few in the Children's Garden as well as the Fragrance Garden.
Here are a few cultivars I'd like to highlight.
Syringa vulgaris 'Krasavitsa Moskvy'
Syringa vulgaris 'Macrostachya'
Syringa vulgaris 'Montaigne'
Syringa vulgaris 'Nadezhda'
Syringa villosa 'James Macfarlane'
