Syringa is a sort of the beauty-flowering bush from the family of Oleaceae, widespread in Europe and Asia. Concerning an origin of the name of a sort there is no consensus. According to one point of view, the Latin name is a plant found in a honor of the character from the myths of Ancient Greece - the nymph Siringi who turned into a reed, escaping from Pang. And other researchers consider that "syringa" resembles from the Greek word which is translated as "tube". Most likely, it reflects an unusual form of a flower of a lilac.
