Dwarf Reblooming Lilac with Fragrant Blossoms

Josee Lilac is a gorgeous, reblooming lilac.  Its dwarf habit would make it a perfect choice for your small garden or even a large patio container.  Planted in borders or as a mass planting, it would be a stunning addition to your yard.

Your Josee Lilac is a relatively carefree ornamental shrub with exceptional features.  Its delightfully fragrant, lavender-pink flowers erupt into bloom in late spring, and unlike other lilacs, the show isn’t over after the first bloom!

Josee Lilac will surprise northern gardeners with reliable rebloom all summer and fall, and even southern gardeners may get a flush of rebloom in autumn!  The sweet, heady fragrance of the clustered, tubular blooms will waft across your yard like no other planting.  It’s a summer scent so resplendent in its warmth and intensity that you’ll wonder how you ever lived without one of these marvelous shrubs in your yard.

Josee Lilac, unlike some other lilacs, maintains a diminutive size.  At just 4 to 6 feet in height (with an equal spread), it’s a perfect way to enjoy the benefits of a lilac shrub in almost any landscape.  Josee Lilac is quite hardy, with superb mildew resistance. 

It doesn’t require pruning, but a quick trim helps to encourage re-bloom and maintain its compact habit.  Birds, bees, hummingbirds and butterflies will adore this reblooming shrub in your yard, bringing pollinators to your landscape in droves.

All in all, there’s nothing like a lilac, and no yard is ever truly complete without one.  Josee lilac provides the usual outstanding assets of a lilac bush, but adds dwarf size and reblooming nature to the list of attributes.  It’s a must-have for your yard today.

* Prolific blooms
* Amazing fragrance
* Wildlife interest
