Syringa vulgaris

Did you know that “vulgaris” means common in Latin?

Well, my very common lilacs are extremely prolific. I’ve got a giant bouquet in just about every room of the house.  I notice the smell before I even open my eyes in the morning.  I have a list of my favorite trees in the city, and these two are ranked second and third.
