Old-Fashioned Lilac Jumbo Hedge

Old-Fashioned Lilac Jumbo Hedge

The Old-Fashioned Lilac delights garden visitors with gorgeous purple flower panicles and sweet fragrance. A favorite of northern gardeners, this reliable flowering shrub blooms in mid to late spring. The fragrant flower panicles attract butterflies and hummingbirds. Growing 8-15 ft. tall with a 6-12 ft. spread, this shrub can be grown as a specimen plant. It's also ideal for planting as a hedge, as a privacy screen, or at the margins of woodland gardens. Although low maintenance, it needs good air circulation and well-drained soil. Deer tend to pass it by. For best results, plant in full sun to partial shade. Zones 3-7.

Botanical Name: Syringa vulgaris
