Well-placed flowering shrubs give landscapes a professional look and delight the senses with their flowers and fragrance. Royalty Lilac is an excellent choice for extending the lilac season. Blooming a few weeks later than many varieties, its dark purple buds open to lovely lavender shades. Like other lilac bushes, its fragrance perfumes the spring air. Growing 8-10 ft. tall with a slightly upright habit, it's an excellent choice for planting in a row along a perimeter or border for a privacy screen or planting as a flowering hedge. Royalty Lilac also is an attractive backdrop when planted behind perennial flowerbeds. Like other lilac bushes, it prefers well-drained soil, and deer tend to avoid. Plant in full sun.
