Description of your tree:
Lilac is a small deciduous trees, ranging in size from 6-7 m tall, with stems up to 20-30 cm diameter. The leaves are opposite in arrangement and broad lanceolate. The flowers are produced in spring, each flower being 5 to 10 mm in diameter with a four-lobed corolla, the corolla tube narrow, 5 to 20 mm long; they are monoecious, with fertile stamens and stigma in each flower.
The usual flower colour is a shade of purple (often a light purple or lilac), but white, pale yellow and pink, and even a dark burgundy color are also found. Flowering varies between mid spring to early summer. The fruit is a dry, brown capsule, splitting in two at maturity to release the two winged seeds.
Lilac is a species of flowering plant in the olive family (Oleaceae), native to the Balkan Peninsula, where it grows on rocky hills. It prefers rocky well drained soils, but it can easily adapt to different soil conditions. It’s not a particularly competitive species, and in nature its population is scattered since it often gets out-competed by other species. Due the abundance of its flowers, the colours and the fragrance it is widely used as ornamental plant all over Europe.
The flowers of lilac are fragrant, colourful and have nectar, which makes this species attractive to bees in Spring, however since other flowering species have a more abundant nectar production Lilac is rarely used for honey production.
