    48342D1C-46FA-46B8-A185-72BADF613B35.png These beautiful lilacs grow at the edge of the property where I work. The plants are perhaps 4 1/2 feet tall. Maybe 3-4 feet wide with beautiful ball shaped blooms. Fragrance is sweet and very potent.
    Anyone know which lilac plant/variety they might be? All the other white ones I find online are cone shaped blooms.

    Tons of varieties. I think they are one of the greatest smelling flowers in the world!
