Fantastically Festive Flowerfesta® Purple Dwarf Lilac

  • Compact Growth Habit
  • Large Purple Panicles
  • Sweetly Fragrant
  • Perfect for Containers
  • Cold and Drought Tolerant

Just like its sister plants, the Flowerfesta® Purple Dwarf Lilac (Syringa meyeri 'Anny200809') is just about as packed with flower power as a single plant can get! With its sweet lilac fragrance and compact size that'll fit just about anywhere in a garden, grabbing one or two of these for your garden is a no-brainer!

This specimen is a dwarf plant, meaning it will fit in large gardens as a flowering hedge, a mixed border plant, or a lovely accent to a patio in a container. However, it doesn't sacrifice blossom size one bit. You'll still have the traditional purple lilac florets that come together to make beautiful panicles almost the size of regular lilacs!

Place a Flowerfesta® Purple Dwarf Lilac on your patio so you can enjoy its stunningly sweet fragrance all season long. You'll have the added bonus of getting to admire the light purple flowers contrasting with the bright green foliage, an enticing sight indeed!

Adding this Dwarf Lilac to your garden or patio ensures you'll have a lovely spring full of blossoms and fragrance. The fun doesn't end there though. Once the season turns and you're starting to think about fall, this wonderful plant will bloom again! That's right, this variety is a repeat bloomer!

If you worry about the kinds of plants you buy because you live in a rather cold region or somewhere often plagued by drought, then this is the perfect shrub for you. The Flowerfesta® Purple Dwarf Lilac is cold hardy down to -18 degrees Fahrenheit and, once established, can handle its fair share of drought. Now that's a hardy plant!

Of course, we would be remiss if we talked about a lilac and didn't mention pollinators. Butterflies and hummingbirds flock to this plant for a springtime snack! Sit back, relax, and enjoy the flutter a Flowerfesta® Purple Dwarf Lilac brings to your patio.

You'll want to plant this shrub in well-drained soil and somewhere it can bask in the sun all day long. However, it can handle a bit of shade as well. As long as the Purple Dwarf Lilac stays watered during the first season, it'll be just fine receiving minimal watering in the future.

You should never have to compromise what you grow due to how much and what type of space you have. If you want a lilac with a compact enough growing habit to fit on your patio or to create a beautiful small flowering hedge in your landscape, then order a Flowerfesta® Purple Dwarf Lilac today!
