Lilacs | Ceriņi



Countryside road with lilac trees on side (upper photo). Taken in Zemgale, central region of Latvia, about a week ago in a windy and rather warm June day, not far from the lilacs capital of Latvia - Dobele town. The start of summer. The second photo is from Riga, Purvciems district.

Syringa vulgaris (lilac or common lilac) is a species of flowering plant in the olive family Oleaceae, native to the Balkan Peninsula, where it grows on rocky hills. This species is widely cultivated as an ornamental and has been naturalized in other parts of Europe (UK, France, Germany, Italy, etc.), as well as much of North America. It is not regarded as an aggressive species, found in the wild in widely scattered sites, usually in the vicinity of past or present human habitations.

Ceriņi ir liels, 2-4 m augsts, vasarzaļš olīvu dzimtas krūms, kas bagātīgi zaro. Miza pelēcīga. Lapas uz zariem pretējas, šauri vai plati olveidīgas (ga 5-10 cm, pl 2-6 cm), ar kātu, pamats sekli sirdsveidīgs. Lapas pacietas, it kā ādainas, virsma gluda, mala gluda, gals smails. Ziedi smaržīgi, blīvās daudzziedu galotnes vai sānu skarās (ga 8-20 cm), kam konusveida figūra. Kauss īss, četrzobains. Vainags gaišāk vai tumšāk violeti zils (ga ap 1 cm), stobrveidīgs, galā parasti četrdaivains, apmales daivas olveidīgas, atliektas. Auglis - plakana, koksnaina pogaļa. Zied maijā un jūnija sākumā. Dienvidaustrumu Eiropā sastopama suga, savvaļā Balkānos un Turcijā. Mūsdienās ļoti plaši kultivēts mērenā klimata joslā visā pasaulē. Latvijā bieži kultivēts krūms. (Avots: www.latvijasdaba.lv)
