Donald Wyman Lilac
Did you know?

Donald Wyman Lilacs (Syringa Xprestoniae 'Donald Wyman') were first developed in the early 1900s, but weren't officially introduced to the public until 1944 in Dropmore, Manitoba. Many horticulturists consider these to be the finest lilacs in cultivation due to their attractive flowers and foliage, size, attraction of pollinators, and minimal maintenance requirements.
