Blessed with strongly scented flowers from late spring into early summer, lilacs are desirable deciduous shrubs that will make their presence known.
A real showstopper! Appearing in great profusion at the end of branches clothed with heart-shaped green leaves, the tiny, packed clusters of buds open to reveal a mass of double blooms that smell incredible and act as a magnet to wildlife.
Supplied in this collection:
Syringa vulgaris 'Nadezhda' – Pinky-purple buds that open into double lilac-blue blooms.
Syringa vulgaris 'Michel Buchner' – Rose-pink buds that bloom into a cluster of lilac flowers.
Syringa vulgaris 'Beauty of Moscow' – Pink buds that open into crisp white flowers.
Real sun lovers, lilacs can be grown in just about any soil or can be raised in large containers. For a sensational floral display, year after year, deadhead when two new shoots appear beneath faded blooms and remove any wayward branches to keep a compact shape.
Supplied as 3 established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant.
