Lilac - Common White
While Flowers with Superior Fragrance
Common White Lilac is an ornamental shrub with stunning flowers of intoxicating fragrance. You could use several to dazzling effect as a hedge, or even plant just one as an individual accent near your patio where you can enjoy its spring show.
Your Common White Lilac is well-known and loved by gardeners all over the world for its beauty and fragrance. Its pristine white flowers bloom on long, upright panicles in mid-spring.
The dark green, heart-shaped leaves provide an elegant compliment to the clustered blossoms. As if the dazzling spring display weren’t enough, your Common White Lilac will astound you with its fragrance--one of the most powerful fragrances emitted by a plant (and one of its most-beloved features).
Common White Lilac will grow to about 10 feet in height with an 8 foot spread. It’s a very hardy shrub, especially for North American gardens as it can withstand severely cold winters. In fact, Common White Lilac actually does best in areas with significant frost in wintertime. It’s also quite tolerant of soil conditions and will even do well in urban environments.
Although it has been recreated for perfumes and candles, nothing can compare to the scent of fresh Lilac in your yard and home. Used as cut flowers, or left to decorate your yard, the fragrance is captivating, ensuring the scent of spring for weeks, if not months.
Plant one today, or couple one with our Common Purple Lilac for outstanding color contrast. Either way, you won’t want to miss the allure of a Lilac for your landscape.
