James Macfarlane Lilac Hedge
Extend the lilac season with this easy-to-grow lilac bush. The James Macfarlane Lilac blooms in late spring, about two weeks later than many other lilac varieties. Its large clusters of fragrant, pink flowers attract hummingbirds and butterflies and scent the spring air. The flower clusters are excellent for cutting and fresh flower arrangements. Like other lilacs, the James Macfarlane is a low-maintenance, deciduous shrub. It grows 8-10 ft. tall with a similar spread and is ideal for planting as a flowering hedge or privacy screen. Its green foliage also provides a nice backdrop for perennial beds. It grows best in full sun.
