Shrub with Astonishing Flowers and Fragrance

Charles Joly Lilac is a deciduous shrub with enchanting, scented flowers.  With its lovely spring accent, it would make a wonderful screen or border specimen for your yard.

There are few things more majestic or memorable in the spring landscape than a blooming lilac.  Its astonishingly beautiful flowers and breathtaking sweet scent are unlike any other plant you’ll ever own.  

Lilacs have an aroma many associate with feelings of “home”, and the flowers will be right at home inside your house as well where the cut flowers will fill your house with that same magical scent.

Your Charles Joly Lilac is a French Hybrid lilac that is considered the best in its color class!  Its shiny purple buds open into double, magenta flowers.  The effect of the spring bloom is stunning, showing off the vivid coloration of its deep, wine-red flowers. 

This strong, long-lasting shrub has an upright shape and is easily grown in average, medium moist, well-drained soil. It will grow to 12 feet in height with a 10 foot spread, and has a hardy nature and pleasant countenance.  

Charles Joly Lilac tolerates light shade, but its best bloom is in full sun.  Charles Joly is both disease and deer resistant so you’ll be saved the time and trouble of dealing with costly measures to keep it safe from harm.

Butterflies, bees and hummingbirds love it, and you will too. Demand for this lilac is extremely high! Order yours now!

Deer resistant Review by Betts
The deer are leaving my Charles Joly lilac alone so far. They do not leave very many of my perennials alone so that makes me happy.
So Pretty Review by Liz
Ordered this to plant in celebration of my first granddaughter. Very happy with it. Can't wait to watch the butterflies anf hummingbirds each year and enjoy the scent of course.
Very Happy Review by Cathy
I am so happy with this Lilac. It was shipped quickly and planted right away. Planted right next to the patio to enjoy all spring. I'll certainly be back for more, maybe some white Lilacs next time to go with this one.
Perfect Review by Steve
Purchased this for my Mother-in-Law. It was packed really well and arrived in great shape. She loved the color and that it has double flowers. Very satisfied with this purchase.
Another Lilac! Review by Sue Ellen
Love this Lilac! I am working on filling my backyard with as many varieties as I can find - Lilacs are my favorite. The Charles Joly is a really beautiful color and the fragrance - wow.
