One of the loveliest signs of spring, the fragrant lilac blooms as the weather warms! The flowering shrub featured on the coin’s reverse is a uniquely Canadian contribution to lilac cultivars: the Preston lilac, which was named for its creator, Isabella Preston (1881 – 1965). Canada’s first female hybridist was also one of our most acclaimed ornamental plant breeders; throughout her 26-year career at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa, Ontario, Preston introduced almost 200 new hybrids—including the hardy, late-blooming lilac featured here in outstanding colour!
