General Information +

General Characteristics: Easily grown in average, medium moisture, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun. Intolerant of full shade. Prefers moist, fertile, organically rich, slightly acidic to slightly alkaline soils with good drainage. Avoid soggy soils. Needs good air circulation. Prune as needed immediately after flowering. To the extent practicable, promptly remove faded flower panicles before seed set. Best grown in cool summer climates. Not recommended for planting in the hot and humid conditions of the deep South in USDA Zones 9-10. Promptly remove root suckers, particularly on grafted plants, to maintain plant appearance and prevent unwanted colonial spread. Propagate by cuttings in spring. They attract both Hummingbirds and Butterflies!

Lilac Characteristics: Syringa vulgaris, commonly known as common lilac, is an upright, multi-stemmed, suckering, deciduous shrub in the olive family. Numerous cultivars have been introduced over time in both single and double-flowered forms. Cultivars extend the range of available flower colors to include shades of white, cream, rose, magenta, pinkish-purple, lavender, light blue and purple. It is native to open woodlands, rocky hills and scrubby areas in southeastern Europe but has been widely cultivated throughout Europe (beginning in the late 1500s) and North America (brought over by colonists in the early 1600s). It is particularly noted for its mid to late spring (May) bloom of very fragrant, tubular, 4-lobed, lilac to purple flowers (each to 1/3" long) which bloom in large conical to narrow-pyramidal panicles (to 6-8" long). Flowers give way to loose clusters of smooth, brown, flattened, dehiscent seed capsules (each to 3/4" long) which persist into winter if not removed. Glaucous, opposite, pointed-ovate to heart-shaped leaves (2-5" long) are dark gray-green to blue-green. No fall color. The bark is gray to gray-brown.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: Easily grown in average, medium wet, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun. Prefers rich, moist, neutral soils. Needs good air circulation. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2 inches below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly. The Lilac transplants easily.

Pests or Diseases: The plant grows in shade but flowering is poor and powdery mildew is likely.
