Syringa x hyacinthiflora (NA 62975; Pl 641814)
Another great release from our very own U.S. National Arboretum, based on the excellent breeding work by the late great Dr. Don Egolf during the 1970s. A cross between Syringa ‘Sweet Charity’ and Pocahontas, Declaration is most noted for its dramatically striking dark reddish-purple very fragrant blooms, outstanding deep burgundy fall color, and open upright growth habit. Performs best in cooler lilac-growing regions.
