    Looking for a fragrance-free lilac variety available in Vancouver. Do they exist? If not, which is the faintest scented variety available here? Thanks

    According to this Estonian site, there are several unscented varieties:

    You should check by cultivar name from some other site, if they are really without any smell, because I just set the filter "lõhnatu" (without smell), but I have no experiences with these cultivars.

    Maybe give the Hulda Klager Lilac Gardens a call: https://lilacgardens.com/ I vaguely recall that some of the cultivars were marked as unscented. As to whether those would be available in the Vancouver, BC market... I'm skeptical.

    That garden is such a perfect place to break up the drive from Seattle to Portland. It's very close to the freeway too.
