In his 1927 survey of the Farm's plantings, botanist John Bregger considered this group of several Burbank hybrid lilacs to be the most important of the never-introduced plants growing here. With some nearby oaks removed to allow more sunlight to reach them, the lilacs flowered for the first time in decades in 1991. There are single and double flowered forms, both purple and white, and a form with two-toned flowers. All are highly fragrant.
