Extend Your Lilac Season With This Ludwig Spaeth Lilac

  • Fragrant
  • Late Bloomer
  • Low Maintenance

There are few things as coveted in the garden as the one to two weeks that lilacs bloom in the spring. The air is perfumed as only a lilac can do. For 50 weeks a year, lilacs are handsome, shade providing shrubs - but oh, those two weeks in spring!

Those in the know, though, will always have a Ludwig Spaeth Lilac in their garden. Why? Ludwig Spaeth blooms later than almost all other lilacs so you'll always have a few more weeks of that magical lilac show.

Ludwig Spaeth is a French Hybrid Lilac that was first introduced in 1883. It's a gorgeous late bloomer that has stood the test of time.

This lilac charges into spring draped in traditional sparkling green, heart shaped leaves. However, the Ludwig Spaeth really starts its show well after your other Lilacs have started blooming.

In early June your shrub will be covered with huge clusters of beautiful deep reddish-purple blooms that are excellent as cut flowers. Just a few of the large blooms will perfume your entire house.

Ludwig Spaeth makes for a stand-out at the back of a perennial border, along a foundation or as a screening shrub. It will tolerate some shade, but blooms best in full sun.

Don't limit your lilac season. Add this beauty to your garden this year.
