Moondust is a new lilac on the market for the first time. It is a mutation of Nadezhda offering varigated flowers much like Sensation but double and much lighter in color. It retains its wonderful fragrance as Nadezhda and is the first double varigated lilac to ever be introduced.
We only have 50 of these this year so get them as they are available.

 We have learned over the last few years that a few of our lilacs give the best seedlings. Aloise has given us many nice colors and so has F. K. smith and Frederick Law Olmsted. This lilac has one of the most sweetly scented flowers I have had the chance to experience in a long time.

One of the rarest lilacs and thought extinct for many years. This is probably the best lilac Lemoine ever did with richness in color and triple floretting. It took us years to track one down. Last sighting of it was in Rochester Highland Park in 1963 then at Father Fiala's house until it burned back in the 1990's. Highly fragrant and a real must have to continue the genetic pool of this lilac.
One look at the photo and you'll be in love with this plant. One look at it in person with a wave of perfume is enough to make a blog of it!
