Lilac - Common Purple

The Purple Lilac is the scent of spring.

The Common Purple Lilac (Syringa Vulgaris) is the most popular lilac variety.  It provides fantastic spring color every year without fail.

In the spring your Lilac will burst into bloom. Lovely clusters of lavender flowers sit against dark green, heart shaped leaves, and the fragrance is just delightful. These plants are so aromatic butterflies and hummingbirds find them irresistible.
Although it’s been recreated for perfumes and candles, nothing compares to the scent of fresh Lilac. The fragrance is captivating; literally spring will be in the air for weeks, if not months.

Planted in any sunny spot in your yard, the Lilac will thrive in most any soil and can withstand even severe winters. This shrub has been a favorite for decades because you can essentially plant it and ignore it. 

Your Lilac will grow quickly to a height of 8-10 feet making it a stunning choice as a hedge or privacy screen, but it’s also lovely as an accent plant.

Although purple is the most popular color choice, Lilacs are available in many colors. For a colorful hedge add the Persian and White Lilacs.  

The Lilac is a beautiful, traditional shrub that is pleasing and potent. A wonderful addition to any landscape.

Fragrant Review by Wearing pink
My Grandmother almost cried when I told her that the Common Purple lilac would not bloom in southern FL. I almost think she would back to MI just to smell the fragrance of this lilac again.
Flowers Review by Nellie
I took a bouquet of these lilac flowers and a blue baby blanket for a baby shower for my nieces new baby boy. I never hear a word about the blanket but she mentions those lilacs all the time.
plant them near a window! Review by Lilacs in bloom
People living next door has them where I grew up. Wasn't sure which variety, thought I would try this. I wasn't dissapointed! I'll be buying more & trying some other varieties.
lilac Review by seashell2284
we moved into our house in july of 06. so the lilacs had already bloomed. i have 3 total. two are by my kitchen window and a third on the drive way. i trimmed the one on the drive way it was about 8 ft. i wanted to see what it would do before i cut the other two, being it was the wrong time of year for trimming. the other two will get trimmed after they bloom in spring. cant wait...
