General Information

This looks like some 4 petalled giant hyacinth.
White Flower Bunches Shrub Bush.

The Lilac is the State flower of New Hampshire.
Many cities have Lilac Festivals annually.

Lilacs flower on old wood, and produce more flowers if unpruned. If pruned, the plant responds by producing fast-growing young vegetative growth with no flowers, in an attempt to restore the removed branches; a pruned lilac often produces few or no flowers for one to five or more years, before the new growth matures sufficiently to start flowering.

Lilacs generally grow better in slightly alkaline soil.

Lilac bushes can be prone to powdery mildew disease, which is caused by poor air circulation.

The wood of lilac is close-grained, diffuse-porous, extremely hard and one of the densest in Europe.

Lilac wood has traditionally been used for engraving, musical instruments, knife handles etc.

The pith in the shoots of some Lilacs can be easily hollowed out to make reed pipes or flutes.
