This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, humus-rich, well-drained, neutral to alkaline soil
  • Rate of Growth: average
  • Flowering period: April and May, then intermittently until October
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    One of the new breed of lilacs, which has a main flush of flowers in spring, but then carries on flowering intermittently right through until mid-autumn. The flowers are a rich pinkish purple and they open from darker coloured buds, so the overall effect is very colourful. The scent is good too.

  • Garden care: In mid summer remove the faded flower heads carefully using secateurs to avoid damaging the young shoots. Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in early spring.
