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: May and June
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Abundant panicles of fragrant, lavender pink flowers in late spring and early summer and oval, dark green leaves. This lovely Korean lilac is ideal for a sunny, well drained shrub or mixed border. Compact and slow growing it's perfect for the smaller garden or where space is limited.

  • 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.
