Comment
Lilac (scientific name: Syringa vulgaris) is native to Europe and is a cold-tolerant defoliated mid-tree in the family Oleaceae. In early summer, a large cone-shaped inflorescence (flower bunch) extends from the stem end to bloom many light purple and aromatic florets. The floret has a funnel shape with four split tips. Lilac flower language is "friendship" or "humble", and by flower color distinction, purple is "first love" or "bud of love", white is "innocent".
