Showy, Fragrant, Cold Hardy Tree

Many flowering trees do their thing in spring, which can be a little bit of a letdown come June. Just when those early bloomers are fading, though, along comes the Japanese Tree Lilac to fill in the void. It doesn’t just bring a power flower show, either, but a welcome floral perfume for your garden too.

The Japanese Tree Lilac can be trained as either a multi-stemmed shrubby tree or a taller single trunked tree. Either way it is covered with fragrant, creamy-white panicles of flowers for a long bloom time in the summer. Unlike so many of the spring bloomers, the flowers and leaves are on the tree at the same time. This gives a beautiful and exotic look to your garden.

Used often in commercial landscapes and streetscapes, this hardy tree has proven that it can perform exceptionally well in home gardens, especially where summers are cooler. For the best floral display, plant the Japanese Tree Lilac where it will get plenty of sun and you will enjoy its fragrant summer time show.

When the tree isn’t in flower and has dropped its leaves for the winter, it still has a neat trick up its sleeve - the Japanese Tree Lilac has textured and striped, cherry tree-like bark that is a show in its own right.

Don’t miss out on this great tree in your yard for the summer. The sooner you buy from Nature Hills, the sooner you can enjoy!

*Fragrant Creamy White Panicles in Early Summer

Great little tree Review by Mary
Love the fragrant flowers and can't wait to watch it grow! Tree arrived quickly and in good condition. Was planted towards fall and made it through a Chicago winter and bloomed this summer! It is a slower growing tree, so it is still pretty small.

I got this tree at that hard summer year 2 years ago, and I thought this tree won't survive. It did! and it has flowered this year, though still not much. I am happy with it.
