Common Purple Lilac
The Purple Lilac is the Scent of Spring
The Common Purple Lilac (Syringa vulgaris) is the most popular lilac variety. It provides fantastic spring color every year without fail.
In the spring your Lilac will burst into bloom. Lovely clusters of lavender flowers sit against dark green, heart shaped leaves, and the fragrance is just delightful. These plants are so aromatic butterflies and hummingbirds find them irresistible.
Although it’s been recreated for perfumes and candles, nothing compares to the scent of fresh Lilac. The fragrance is captivating; literally spring will be in the air for weeks, if not months.
Planted in any sunny spot in your yard, the Lilac will thrive in most any soil and can withstand even severe winters. This shrub has been a favorite for decades because you can essentially plant it and ignore it.
Your Lilac will grow quickly to a height of 8-10 feet making it a stunning choice as a hedge or privacy screen, but it’s also lovely as an accent plant.
Although purple is the most popular color choice, Lilacs are available in many colors. For a colorful hedge add the Persian and White Lilacs.
The Lilac is a beautiful, traditional shrub that is pleasing and potent. A wonderful addition to any landscape.
