Syringa palibiniana


Seen flowering in the Lower Garden at Kiftsgate Court. This variety has an unusually delicate leaf.

I can’t help but get excited when I see a flower like this, that long neck resembles so many of the excellent specimens you see butterflies flocking too! A flower shaped like that reads, “Bar open: happy hour!” to your butterfly. And, no matter how much they drink they remain elegant and well turned out, which you have to respect really!

Beautiful! Any plant that attracts butterflies can do no wrong in my book. Even the irrepresable budlea!

I don't know what I like better about your blog, Bertie. The great descriptions or the wonderful photos! Keep it up though. ;)

In the US it's known as Syringa meyeri 'Palibin'. Or is this something different?

I believe they are one and the same Jordan.
