The Chinese Lilac, Syringa Chinensis, is a large round-headed shrub that can be used as a single specimen or as a background border or screening planting. It produces an excellent floral display in early May. The flower color is lilac purple. Flowers are produced in 4-5" long panicles after the foliage emerges. It is a profuse bloomer with fragrant flowers covering much of the plant. It makes an attractive unsheared hedge.

Lilacs prefer a rich well drained soil. Although they will grow in light shade, they will develop a more dense plant habit and flower much better when grown in full sun. Renewal pruning to remove a few older canes each year will help keep the plant full to the base. Prune after flowering for best landscape effect.
