Another street tree from the rich hunting grounds of London SW1.
A beauty but I'm at a loss with the identification.
Any help appreciated.
Well spotfed (for London).
It is Melia; probably Persian lilac, Melia azedarach (though the flowers of yours look whiter than mine)
They grow very well here in the Mediterranean, but to be honest I didn't know they grew as far north as the UK.
I am not familiar with the other species, so perhaps you should investigate to make sure.
Thank you very much for this. Interesting and very helpful.
Will certainly look further into this now that I have something to go on.
