Garnered Perry Dyer's DARK HORSE AWARD in 1998/99. HE SAYS: " I'm amazed that any introduction from this matriarch median hybridizer could go unnoticed. The lack of notoriety for this classy cool white Intermediate is just unforgivable. Incredible placement of branching and sheer bud count, good growth. All the other characteristics are prime. But the calling card for White Lilacs is its elegant flower. A cold-cold icy white, heavily infused with a cool lilac throughout the flower. Heavily ruffled, carved into the flower. It glistens in the sunlight. "
