FAQ

Where is the best place to plant a Lilac bush?

Our durable Lilac cultivars will grow easily in nearly any sunny garden. They prefer well-drained soil and a consistent watering schedule.

Flowering is most prolific in a spot that receives at least six hours of sunlight a day. Use Lilac bushes:

  • Informal hedge along your property line
  • For "garden walls" of an outdoor room
  • Flowering privacy screen
  • Keep smaller cultivars in containers for many years
  • Excellent housewarming present
  • Anchor for foundation planting
  • Mixed into garden borders
  • Welcome lawn planting with spring-flowering bulbs

What time of year do Lilacs bloom?

Each Lilac plant blooms for roughly two heavenly weeks. Extend that flowering season by planting early, mid-season and late-season bloomers!

Add Cutleaf and Persian Lilacs for another series of beautifully fragrant blooms. Don't forget about the Bloomerang&reg: series extends the season of bloom with a second flush of flowers from mid-summer through fall.

Tips on how to prune Lilacs

Pruning Lilacs requires only simple maintenance. As the blooms begin to fade, plan to snip them for indoor floral displays and as centerpieces on a table.

Every few years, do renewal pruning to shape and rejuvenate your Lilac shrubs after the flowers are finished for the season. Prune a few of the thickest stems down to the ground...leaving the youngest, thinnest stems in place to produce abundant flowers.

NatureHills.com has plenty of showy Lilacs for sale! We even grow specialty Lilac ‘tree form’ verisions of Bloomerang® Lilac tree and Purple Lilac tree for sale; along with the more traditional bush form.
