Lilac is a deciduous flowering ornamental tree with clusters of small fragrant flowers. In the language of flowers purple lilac means first love. It is popular in parks and gardens throughout the UK where it flowers for a few weeks in spring. However, it is readily available from flower markets from December to April.

It is perfect for late winter and spring weddings and is especially at home in garden style or vintage themes. Beautifully versatile, it’s tall stems make it an excellent choice for pedestal designs but it can also be cut down for use in table and more classic designs.
