Lilac Bush 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. Lilac bushes have numerous uses, such as:
- Creating an informal hedge along your property line
- For garden walls of an outdoor room
- Establishing a flowering privacy screen
- Making an excellent housewarming present
- Creating an anchor for foundation planting
- Mixing magnificently into garden borders
- A welcome lawn planting with spring-flowering bulbs
Another benefit of lilac bushes? You can keep smaller cultivars in containers for many years.
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 to your garden for another series of beautifully fragrant blooms. Don't forget about the Bloomerang® series of lilac bushes. They’ll extend the blooming season with a second flush of flowers from mid-summer through fall.
Tips on pruning 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.
