Plant of the Month Pick-August

Well for the month of August I decided to go with Idaho's State Flower the Syringa or Mock Orange. It was offical adopted as the state flower in 1931. This has to be one of my all time favorite plants. It has very showy flowers that smell wonderful. They bloom in early summer and are white in color. There is a couple different varities, one with double blooms. Syringa is a great plant for drier areas with lots of sun. The get to be about six feet tall so make sure they are planted where they can spread a little and be beatiful and full.
