My mum would like a lilac tree that reminds her of her late father, mainly because of the scent. Can anyone recommend a good tree in this area to purchase?



Have a look at Whispering Trees Nursery website. They have a very good page all about Syringa ( Lilac trees )

Syringa 'Charles Joly' Lilac tree is a reliable one and highly perfumed. But take care when buying as some sucker and can take over a garden although I dont find that with mine.
