Syringa x hyacinthiflora Anabel

Syn. 'Annabel', 'Annabelle'

Bred by Hawkins in 1948 from S. oblata ssp. dilatata, and named after his wife; name registered in 1953; cultivar introduced in 1956.

Almost indistinguishable from the vulgaris cultivars, this is one of the earliest of the common lilac types to emerge. Florets are double, mid-pink and fragrant.

Typical of the hybrid, it is expected to grow into a largish suckering shrub 3 x 2m
