The company will probably not ask for them to be sent back.

Ask for your money back.

Then go to a good nursery.

Check size/quality/health/cost before you buy.

Most will offer a years guarantee.

What is this?

Sorry I am confused.

I am not sure what you mean.

1st link the leaves are not as open as yours.... it could be Syringa x persica... the photo bears no name.

The 2nd link you cannot even see any leaves?

3rd link is the same company I first used Perry hill... Syringa x persica. in my post at 14.38p.m

Plant ID please

I actually suggested this earlier but didn't think you had seen my post.


You can rule our  Syringa persica laciniata completely....

correctly called Syringa x laciniata

The leaf is very very different.

Laciniata means cut leaf.

Your lilac definitely does not have a cut leaf!

The internet is wonderful but not every picture on it is correctly labelled.

See this accurate pic of the leaves!....


Plant ID please

QUOTE "The other possibility is S. pubescens microphylla Superba."


The leaves on  Syringa pubescens subsp microphylla Superba are a very different shape.

Native/traditional British plants for office plants?

Its not a question of Hardiness.

Plants that need it warm, frost free would maybe survive.

But to be happy they need sunshine/good light.


While plants that are happy in shade/low light  would be miserable in a dry warm office.

I agree with the comments posted above
