Exquisite Lilac Fragrance

Did you know that lilacs have been cultivated in gardens around the world since 1563? Any plant that has stood the test of time like that deserves to be in your garden, wouldn’t you say? Monge Lilac (Monge Lilac, Syringa vulgaris 'Monge') is a beautiful version of this beloved plant and one you should definitely try.

The deep, grape-wine color and the HUGE panicles of flowers are standouts in any garden, but especially in a lilac-lovers garden. The scent – true lilac – sits intoxicatingly heavy over the garden as long as the flowers are in bloom, an unparalleled pleasure.

Not to be outdone by the flowers, the deep green leaves turn a beautiful purple color in the fall before they drop. This plant gives three seasons of beauty!

Easy to grow, it even tolerates light shade. It grows thick and tall and makes a great specimen plant and an even better border or hedge. Little can compare to a hedge of Monge in full bloom!

Let Monge Lilac take center stage in your garden this year. You’ll have hundreds of years of garden lovers behind you! Order yours today!

* Deep colored flowers – not the pastels you know
* Fall color
* True Lilac scent
