Hardy Shrubs with a Delicious Scent

The Lilac 'James Macfarlane', Syringa presoniae 'James Macfarlane', blooms two weeks later than Syringa vulgaris types. The true single pink flowers bloom freely.

It is extremely hardy and adaptable, withstanding moisture conditions fatal to vulgaris hybrids. This lilac has an upright shape.

James MacFarlane is an elegant, hardy shrub which will make a colorful informal hedge, or can be grown as a specimen shrub or small tree.

The large clusters of deliciously scented flowers bloom in May and June and are attractive to butterflies. For best results, lilacs should be grown in fertile, humus-rich, well-drained soil.

As with many other lilacs, this lilac will attract hummingbirds and butterflies!

* Large Clusters of Pink Blooms
* Extremely Hardy and Adaptable

Wonderful, lacey, fragrent shrub! Review by Sandy
I bought this lilac for my nephew of the same name, and 2 for myself, as this is my grandfather's name. I was greatly surprised to find that it is not only beautiful, but easy to grow. They are the centerpiece of my garden!
Hardy Review by Winter
I reside on the edge of zone 3 and zone 2 and the James McFarlane blooms every year. This is a reliable plant.
It is the most beautiful lilac I've ever seen! Review by Alison
I grow it as a small tree very near to my house. The lilac is much admired. Before flowering the clusters of buds hang like droplets of silk, it is absolutely heavenly. It's a wonderful pink colour with, as you say, an amazing scent.
