Is this for you?
Attracts pollinators. Lilac flowers are famous for making bouquets, and when in bloom, hummingbirds and butterflies are drawn to them. Lilacs are generally very forgiving, tolerant of urban pollution and neglect.

Springtime blooms add drama to your landscaping! Perfect for a small specimen garden or plant this shrub along your mixed border. A great option for a large pot on a sunny patio, this lilac will dress up any drab space.

Enjoy an aromatic experience in the garden. If you have never had the pleasure of smelling a lilac in full bloom, you are in for a treat! The scent is sweet without being cloying, fruity but without citrus, and floral but not strong and fake. It is a fresh and clean scent reminiscent of a spring day. The scent lingers far across your yard, inviting butterflies, and hummingbirds to pay a visit.

Blooms best in full sun but tolerates partial shade! Adaptable to various soil types and needing little pruning, this sun lover is an easy, low maintenance addition to any landscape. Its hardy and robust foliage is also deer resistant!

Can be grown throughout most of the continental U.S. An excellent value and investment in any landscape. **This product cannot ship to the following states and territories AK, HI, PR, VI, and GUAM.
