Syringa x hyacinthiflora 'Pocahontas'
Pocahontas Lilac

'Pocahontas' is a special Lilac that you will treasure for the profusion of fragrant flowers that appear earlier (by about two weeks) than those of one of its parents, the Common Lilac (Syringa vulgaris). Flower buds of 'Pocahontas' are on the maroon side of purple and open into single, violet blooms. For the rest of the season, plants display healthy green leaves that turn a bronzy red in fall before dropping.
