Syringa hyacinthiflora “Dark Night”
SVII lilac colour group. The beginning of flowering is earlier than the usual lilac, because initially it is a cross between S.oblata and S.vulgaris.
Shrub height is about 2.5-3 m, width about 2.5 m. This ranks the variety in the semi-dwarf section as relatively small.
During the summer, the leaves of the bush are dark green, which turns bronze red in the middle of autumn.
