Design Ideas: Lilacs are among the most beautiful of all deciduous flowering shrubs. Use as a single specimen early season focal point at some far point of the garden. Closer in plant where the heady fragrance is best enjoyed. In side yards and as hedges dividing houses the windows can be open for the floral scent to waft indoors. Plant next to outdoor living spaces, preferably upwind to keep you perpetually perfumed. Large plants make excellent background for perennial borders. Use to mark a gateway or entry where you pass by the blooms going in and out. A stellar foundation plant for front yard highlights.

Thrives in well-drained, neutral to slightly alkaline soils. Needs good air circulation. Water deeply, regularly in the first growing season to establish an extensive root system. Once established, reduce frequency; increase frequency again before and during spring bloom period. Fertilize in early spring. Prune after flowering.

History

Lilac has always been renowned for the fragrance of its flowers, yet it has long been considered bad luck to bring cut lilac blooms indoors. Some attribute this to the old time practice of using lilac flowers to mask the odor of death during funerals with viewing of the body done in the home parlor.

Customer Reviews

Impressive plant
by maggie'sdad, June 29, 2015

My lilac arrived with my name on the pot. Nice touch! I thought the plant was a very nice size, well filled out specimen. I have just planted it, so I don't have any info on its performance. But suffice it to say, the plant size and price were better than anything I could have mail ordered.
