This large lilac has brilliant clusters of white flowers that appear profusely in spring. It is fast growing, with long arching branches.Although it is a selection from the central coast we have been observing its performance in an Escondido garden with a harsh inland climate and it has done extremely well. This lilac will tolerate heavy soil and some summer water. We recommend part shade in inland areas. This lilac is well suited as a pretty, natural screen. It will tolerate some pruning. You will enjoy the flowers in spring and songbirds will find it to be an attractive home!
'Snow flurry' is a horticultural selection from Big Sur, central coast, Monterey Co.and was introduced by Joe Solomone 1975.
