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

    This easy to grow shrub will flower for months, so it is perfect for smaller gardens where you need high-performance plants. Like other lilacs, it has an initial (main) flush of flowers in mid- to late spring, but then it will carry on flowering intermittently right through to mid-autumn. It is relatively compact so can be grown in a large patio pot if kept well fed and watered, and will make a rewarding addition to the shrub or mixed border.

  • 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.
