Requesting ID of this plant with pink flowers captured in Chicago, Illinois, USA in May 2013.
I hope Centranthus ruber again
Thank you … for the possible ID…
However, the type of the cluster of flowers was very different from the earlier Centranthus ruber posted by me and identified by you. Can this be any other species?
Can this be some Syringa species?
Indeed a Syringa sp.
Thank you … for the lead…..
This seems to be Syringa meyeri… Kindly validate.
Not sure about the species. There are many hybrids & cultivars and it is difficult to conclude from these photographs alone. Perhaps somebody else could take a more informed call.
Please check Syringa vulgaris as well.
