$64.95

10 in stock

Very few flowering trees can meet the 'hardy and troublefree' standard set by this eminent lilac cousin. Are the blossoms edible? Not to our knowledge, but they certainly provide a feast for the eyes in early summer when most other species have finished flowering Snowdance™ is a First Editions® selection prized for it's remarkably heavy bloom of large, fragrant, creamy-white flower clusters. Other improvements on the regular Japanese lilac include: blooming dependably every year, rather than every other, starting to flower at a young age, and darker, more lustrous green foliage. Snowdance™ makes a relatively compact, yet magnificent, shade tree, spreading to about 6m (20') wide and 5.5m (18') tall.
(Syringa reticulata 'Bailnce')

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
