Order one of the most cherished lilacs with its famous strong-scented blooms!


Common Lilac is one of the most cherished lilac famous for its magnificent strong-scented flowers. It is a lovely shrub that is easy to grow and a low maintenance. It usually blooms purple to lilac flowers, but other cultivated varieties may have pink, white, blue and magenta blooms. It grows fast during its early years but slows down to one foot per year as it ages. It has a strong wood and grayish brown to dark gray stems. It is best grown in moist and well-drained soil. Make sure to remove withered flowers as soon as possible. This multi-stemmed shrub can be pruned into a one-stemmed tree. Its maximum height can reach up to 15 feet, with a width of 12 feet at maturity. To achieve the best flowers, it needs at least 6 hours of full sun. Make sure to water the Common Lilac weekly during dry weather to avoid distorted or faded leaves.
