An exciting new introduction, Syringa pekinensis 'China Snow' is a small tree with masses of fragrant white flowers which appear in early summer and an ornamental, peeling, amber-brown bark once established. The leaves are dark green and attractive in their own right, with yellow or bronze autumn colour.
