Early Season Blooms in a Classic Lilac

Evangeline Lilac is an early-flowering, tall shrub.  Plant a few of these for a tall hedge along your house or as a screen.  One would also be outstanding as a specimen plant for your front yard. 

Your Evangeline Lilac will be one of the most breathtaking sights you’ll see in your yard in early spring.  Long panicles of violet flowers shoot up and above the heart-shaped, blue-green leaves early in the season. 

The double blossoms are resplendent in the bright sunshine!  As if the floral vision Evangeline creates weren’t enough, the fragrance it emits is heavenly.  It’s a butterfly’s delight!  When fall arrives, your Evangeline will offer one last gasp of color with the foliage’s transition from its lively green to a deep purple hue. 

Evangeline Lilac will grow to 15 feet in height with a 12-foot spread.  It has a multi-stemmed, upright habit and lives up to 30 years.  Evangeline is tolerant of a variety of soil conditions, and will even do well in urban environments. 

If you love Lilacs, Evangeline is a must-have.  Blooming a week or more before common Lilac bushes, it will extend your Lilac season.  Evangeline is a hardy shrub that’s a profuse-bloomer and sure to bring you enjoyment for many years to come.
