The Common Lilac is a deciduous shrub that is known for its attractive and fragrant flowers. It typically grows to a height of 8 to 20 feet (2.4 to 6.1 meters) and has a spread of 6 to 12 feet (1.8 to 3.7 meters). The shrub has a bushy and upright habit, with many branches that grow in a slightly arching manner.

The leaves of the Common Lilac are dark green and are arranged in an opposite pattern on the stem. They are broadly oval in shape and measure about 2 to 5 inches (5 to 13 centimeters) long.

The most notable feature of the Common Lilac is its flowers, which are produced in dense, terminal clusters that measure up to 8 inches (20 centimeters) long. The flowers are tubular in shape and have four petals that are arranged in a vertical pattern. They are typically purple or lavender in color, although there are also cultivars that have white, pink, or blue flowers.

The flowers of the Common Lilac are highly fragrant and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies. They bloom in the late spring or early summer, typically in May or June, depending on the climate.
