Syringa oblata subsp. dilatata

Syringa oblata subsp. Dilatata known as Korean early lilac, is a subspecies of the species Syringa oblata in the genus Syringa, in the family Oleaceae. Height/Spread: Shrub or small tree 1-3m or 5m high and wide. Leaves: Ovate to Ovate-orbicular, broadly heart-shaped, tapered leaves, measuring 3–10 cm or to 8 cm in length, 2.5–8 cm wide. Base is truncate to broadly cuneate, or subcordate, with a short to long acuminate apex. Leaves are bronze when young, becoming glossy mid-green, purple or'wine-coloured' in autumn. Flowers: Panicles are lateral and measure 5-10 or 12 cm x 8 cm. Corolla ranges in colour from violet-lilac, sometimes white. Lobes are oblong-elliptic and measure 5-8 mm. Anthers are inserted in the middle of the corolla tube. Fragrant flowers are borne in May -- June. Fruit: Capsule measures 7-12 mm. Fruits in September. Gravelly mountains, 100-700m altitude. China: Jilin and Liaoning provinces. Korea: Throughout. Cultivated. Notable cultivars include:'Birchwood"Cheyenne"Donaldii"Nakai"Wild Fire' Oblata from the modern Latin oblatus, meaning'somewhat flattened at the ends, oblate'.

Dilatata means'widened','spread out', or'dilated'. Syringa is derived from the Greek word syrinx, meaning'pipe' or'tube'. Named for the use of its hollow stems to make flutes. In Greek mythology, the nymph Syringa was changed into a reed
