Not Your Grandma's Lilac!

Looking for something different? The Tree Lilac (Syringa reticulata 'Ivory Silk') is not the flowering shrub you might have seen in grandma’s yard, but a small tree that bears huge (foot- long!) flower panicles in late June, well after other lilacs have given up for the season.

The monster flower bunches are creamy white and give off a heady, musky scent that will perfume your entire garden. These trees only get about 25 feet high which makes them perfect for small yards or as a focal point. For an even greater impact, plant several along a fence line – they make a show-stopping tall hedgerow!

On top of all this goodness, the Tree Lilac can withstand temperatures as low as 30 degrees below zero and isn’t affected by soil ph like other lilacs. It is the hardiest and most trouble free Lilac available, especially for northern climates.

The Tree Lilac blooms more heavily than other Lilac varieties, too. It flowers later in the season, extending your Lilac pleasure.

Through the summer your Tree Lilac will be densely covered in beautiful, deep green leaves, a refreshing sight in the height of summer heat. In the fall and winter the attractive, smooth, dark red bark adds an interesting dimension and texture to your landscape.

Whether you’re new to lilacs or just want to add something different to your garden, the Tree Lilac is for you. Order yours today!

* Huge flowers.
* Fragrant blooms.
* Cold hardy and trouble free.

Don’t Prune Lilacs During Fall or Early Spring
