Lilacs will never fail to impress and are a must have in your garden. Bursting with highly fragrant flowers from later spring into early summer, these gorgeous garden shrubs will certainly make their presence known.
A real showstopper, this syringa vulgaris tricolour is no exception. Made up of three young plants all planted in one pot, once established it will appear in great profusion at the end of branches clothed with heart-shaped green leaves, the tiny clusters of buds open to reveal a mass of deep reddish purple, white and lavender purple blooms that smell incredible and will act as a magnet to wildlife.
This tricolour Syringa Vulgaris is made up of:
Syringa vulgaris 'Charles Joly' – Beautiful double flowers in a deep red-purple colour that come into bloom during late spring.
Syringa vulgaris 'Madame Lemoine' – Fragrant clusters of compact white flowers that erupt from creamy-yellow buds.
Syringa vulgaris 'Katherine Havemeyer' -Gorgeous lavender-coloured double blooms that eventually fade to a light lilac-pink.
Each plant in this stunning tricolour selection is fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
A real sun lover, lilacs can be grown in just about any soil or can be raised in large containers if kept regularly pruned, which is not difficult as the blooms make superb cut flowers. 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 an established plant (3 young plants grown in one pot) in a 6L pot, ready to plant out.
