Syringa x prestoniae
The Preston Lilac was bred by Isabella Preston, who born in England (1881) spent most of her life at the Government of Canada run experimental farm in Ottawa. It was here until her retirement in 1946 that she worked in ornamental horticulture developing unique cultivars of Lilac, Lilies, Siberian Iris, Crabapples and the Preston series of roses. S x prestoniae is a cross between S. komarowii subsp. reflexa and S. villosa.
