Hey Bud.........

Syringa vulgaris 'Primrose'

No matter how cold it is getting here, the plants are setting buds already. This is a Primrose Lilac that is planted out in the front garden. As you can see it has lots of buds, hopefully it will bloom this season. Last Spring I had no flowers, but of course it was only its second year in the ground. Third time is always to be a charm...........The Primrose Lilac is a creamy yellow that is so light in color that it is white. It is the only "yellow" Lilac there is and takes about 5 years to start showing any yellow. Take a look on-line at pictures of the Primrose, I have never seen any in person that yellow. Thank you Photoshop............... A deciduous woody shrub that will take partial shade to full sun. Upright in habit to 8' to 10' and spreading as wide. Bloom time is early to mid-Spring.

USDA hardiness zone 3 to zone 7
