With its leaves splashed with gold and yellow, and its flowers light blue this lilac is a joy to observe during the spring season . Lavender blue flowers arise from purple buds in May. The petals are formed in doubles, and have pleasing fragrance. Birds, bees, and hummingbirds all find the flowers attractive.
