Amazing Display & Fragrance
Saugeana Chinese Lilac, Syringa x chinensis 'Saugeana', is a floriferous plant with showy, single, deep lilac-red, fragrant flowers in mid-May.
Neat, small green disease resistant foliage makes an excellent windbreak or screen. It can be used in many situations, including shrub borders, informal hedges and perennial borders.
This lilac consistently produces an abundance of attractive blooms. This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds and requires average water needs.
Saugeana Chinese Lilac prefers full sun, good drainage and air circulation. It tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun .
Being very showy and fragrant, it makes a wonderful screen or border specimen and grows 10-12 feet tall and 5-10 feet wide. Must be kept pruned to prevent legginess. Originating in Rouen, France in 1777, it is one of the first hybrid lilacs.
