  • Soil Requirements: Well-drained, humus-enriched soil.
  • Growth Rate: Moderate to fast growth rate.
  • Pruning: Deadhead spent blossoms and remove older and weaker branches. Prune after flowering, any early Spring pruning would remove potential blossoms, so prune after flowering.
  • Comments: This outstanding lilac is blessed with a number of superior qualities! It's gracefully arching branches create a distinctive cascade of blossoms, and it does it reliably each Spring. The fragrant flowers are borne in amazing abundance, and the foliage is resistant to mildew, that bane of lilacs. But what sets it apart is it's habit of blooming not just at the branch tips, but also from lateral buds produced up to 2 feet or more down the stems! Easy to grow in decent garden soil; once established, it needs little attention other than water during drought.
