Marie Francis Lilac
Hard to Find Pink Lilac Blooms!
Lilac - Marie Francis, Syringa vulgaris 'Marie Frances', is a real treat because it produces fragrant pink flowers, and with pink lilacs among all the blue-lavender-purple, this is very unusual!
The lovely flowers emerge from distinctive, rich pink buds in spring on a compact form. It has bluish-green foliage throughout the season and is a very hardy plant that tends to sucker. The heart-shaped leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color.
Marie Francis’ needs full sun and well-drained soil, and it also requires room for air movement; will tolerate poor soil conditions and harsh winters. The ‘Marie Francis’ shrub must have regular care and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers.
It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard, and is an attractive plant for shrub borders, a garden accent plant, or planted in mass for a flowering hedge or wind screen; excellent for cutting too!
