    Dense panicles of marvellously fragrant, double white flowers in May and June and heart-shaped, fresh-green leaves. This elegant white lilac is perfect for a sunny mixed or shrub border. Growing a late-summer flowering clematis through the branches is a good way of enhancing the shrub after it has flowered.
