Hardy, Fragrant Lilac

Persian Lilac is a deciduous, ornamental shrub with prolific, fragrant flowers.  It would be perfect as a foundation or border planting in your yard.

Your Persian Lilac is a spreading, graceful shrub with arching branches.  Its dark green foliage provides an elegant backdrop for its 2 to 3-inch long, pale pink panicles of flowers that appear in spring. 

The blooms are so fragrant that your nose will likely pick up the scent of the fragrant flowers from around the corner of your home! 

The Persian lilac is a reasonably compact lilac and it will fit into a smaller garden, and shrub border. It will reach 4 to 8 feet in height with a 5 to 10 feet spread. 

This shrub does not need to be pruned if you do not want to, and works great as a hedge plant.  Persian lilac is a fast-growing shrub and is adaptable to pruning if you so desire. It flowers on old wood, so if you need to prune, you should wait until it’s finished flowering.  Persian Lilac is attractive to butterflies and other pollinators, but not attractive to deer, who seem to avoid it.

This plant was introduced in 1614 and it still enjoys an honored location in many landscapes.  For a carefree, free flowering shrub, you can’t do better than the Persian Lilac!
