History/Lore

The common lilac is a native of southeastern Europe. Lilac is an old English word that has its roots in the Arabic word layak and the Persian word nilak, from nil meaning "blue." The genus name syringa means "tube" in Greek which refers to the individual flower shape. It has been cultivated since 1563. Hundreds of cultivars have been developed since that time. The French hybrids are cultivars of the common lilac. The "French" comes from Victor Lemoine, whose nursery in France produced a great many of these hybrids. Purple lilacs signify the first emotions of love while white lilacs symbolize modesty, purity and youth.
