Fast-Growing Lilac with Scented Flowers

President Grevy Lilac is an ornamental shrub.  Plant one as a single focal point in a side yard for its outstanding spring bloom, or use several as an impressive, tall hedge.

Your President Grevy is a stand-out for its spectacular flowers.  Double blooms appear in spring, gathered in tall, upright panicles of delicate, blue-hued delight!  The buds begin a darker shade of blue, so the effect of the bloom period is two-toned, sure to be a stellar sight amid your spring plantings. 

The heart-shaped, green leaves have a slight bluish-tint that provides the foliage a soft, elegant appearance even when the magnificent blooms have faded.  Second only to the appearance of its stunning flowers, President Grevy is beloved for its scintillating scent.  Its extreme floral fragrance will drift on the slightest breeze, and as a cut flower, fill your home with Lilac perfection.

President Grevy will grow up to 11 feet tall with an 8-foot spread.  It is a multi-stemmed shrub, with a pleasing, upright nature and vigorous growth.  President Grevy is tolerant of a variety of conditions, including urban environments, but does prefer full sun for best performance.  Under optimal conditions, you can expect it to live 30 years.

Lilacs have been beloved for generations for their dazzling beauty and alluring scent…and President Grevy is no exception.  Plant a President Grevy for a fast-growing, long-lived Lilac that is sure to give you a lifetime of flowering satisfaction.
