Purple lilacs symbolize
"first love"

The purple lilac story
goes back to Greek mythology...
Syringa is the scientific name of the purple lilac...
The story is that Syringa was a Greek nymph
that was being chased in the woods by the
greek god, Pan. Syringa, to escape Pan,
turned herself into the purple lilac....
