General Information +

General Characteristics: Lilac ‘Nadezhda’ has an upright spreading growth habit and its hardiness make it an excellent choice for urban areas. This shrub is deer resistant. It also attracts pollinators, including 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: First, choose a location with moist but well-drained soil. This lilac does not like acidic soil. Also, be sure the site you choose has good air circulation and full sun for best flowering. Dig a hole approximately 6 inches wider and the same depth as the roots. Place the plant in the hole so that the crown is just above the ground level and gently spread the roots. Fill the hole with soil and water thoroughly. Keep the soil moist around the roots. Water more frequently in extreme heat. Fertilize in early spring and prune after flowering.
