Asessippi Lilac

Out of stock
Also known as Hybrid Lilac and Canadian Lilac. A very hardy shrub with a marvelous, unmistakable fragrance and exquisite lavender blooms each May, which are plentiful. The shrub itself is well-built, well-shaped and full to the base; it doesn’t get leggy or bare near the bottom. Every yard should have a couple of lilac bushes because they’re such a familiar spring sight and so easy-care. Birds, bees and butterflies love to hang out near them, too. The Asessippi Lilac prefers full sun, good drainage and air circulation to prevent powdery mildew. It tolerates light shade, but the best bloom comes from full sun. Your landscape will instantly take on color, fragrance and privacy when planted as a screen, but it’s also wonderful in borders, or as an accent plant. Excellent as a cut flower. Zones 2-7.
