'Tinkerbelle' is a cross between Syringa meyeri ‘Palibin’ and Syringamicrophylla ‘Superba’. It is a rounded, upright, non-suckering, deciduous shrub which typically grows 4-6’ tall and as wide. It is perhaps best noted for its compact shape and its wine-colored buds that open to sweetly-fragrant, pale pink flowers. Flowers appear in panicles in mid- to late spring. Dark green leaves.
