Syringa villosa, the villous lilac,[1] is a shrub native to Korea, the southern part of the Russian Far East (Primorye) and northern China. There are two subspecies currently recognized (April 2014);[2] these are regarded as separate species in Flora of China.[3][4] Combining the ranges for the two taxa yields a range within China of Hebei, Shanxi, Heilongjiang, Jilin, and Liaoning.

Syringa villosa is a shrub up to 4 m tall, with red, white, pink or purple flowers.[4][5]
