Lilac - Ludwig Spaeth
Extend Your Lilac Season With This Gorgeous Late Bloomer
The Ludwig Spaeth Lilac is a French Hybrid Lilac. It’s a gorgeous late bloomer that extends the Lilac season.
In early spring traditional, medium green, heart shaped Lilac leaves will unfurl marking the beginning of the season.
However, the Ludwig Spaeth really starts its show well after your other Lilacs have started blooming.
In early June your shrub will be covered with huge clusters of beautiful deep reddish-purple blooms that will compliment lighter colored Lilacs beautifully.
The Ludwig Spaeth Lilacs are excellent as cut flowers. The large blooms will carry the lovely fragrant scent of spring into your home.
This Lilacs upright form makes it a wonderful choice for a screen or border. A mixed border or group planting of these would be stunning as well.
The Ludwig Spaeth grows 10-12 feet tall and 6-8 feet wide. It will tolerate some shade, but will bloom best in full sun.
A must have variety for Lilac lovers; Ludwig Spaeth is prized for its large fragrant rich violet flowers.
