Lilacs have been a garden favorite for years and often evoke nostalgic feelings of home and childhood. It is multi-stemmed, with simple, light green, oval shaped leaves and smooth gray to gray-brown bark. It is effective as a specimen or massed in the landscape, or may be grown as a privacy screen or hedge. Prompt removal of faded flowers will increase bloom in the following year. Prune immediately after flowering.

Lilac is easily grown in well-drained, neutral-alkaline pH soils in full sun with good air circulation. It transplants easily, and tolerates light shade, but blooms best in full sun. If you are looking to attract birds and wildlife to your landscape, look no further. The characteristics that make this species so visually appealing – showy flowers, stunning fruit, winter color – are some of nature’s most powerful draws for the animal kingdom.

To plant bare root perennials, dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is about 1-2” below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.

Supplied as 12-18” bare root. Tags are included with bare root perennials from DeGroot.
