How to Use President Grevy Lilac in the Landscape

Heighten the anticipation of a fun evening with a gracious welcome at the entrance to your entertainment area. Use these glorious blooming shrubs in a wide double row to establish a lovely allée.

Can you imagine them in full bloom? Pure romance!

Punctuate your planting with benches. You and your guests will love the chance to sit and breathe in the evocative aroma.

Enjoy the spring scent with one or more placed in a well-used area. Try one near your bedroom window. Try a pair of them flanking either side of your garden gate.

Run them along your pool deck or fence line. You'll love the billowy, easy-breeze sense of privacy all season long.

Lilacs are a privacy screen with big benefits! Add a few to your cutting garden for plenty of fresh materials.

Hide your utilitarian Victory Garden with a short row. President Grevy Lilac also entices pollinators that can help you grow the largest harvest ever.

Create a solid screen by planting them six feet apart. Vary the spacing to ten feet apart for a loose, natural look. You'll measure from the center of one to the center of the next.

Add additional varieties, like the double white blooms of Madame Lemoine, for a fresh, classy look. Use a series of staggered rows to fill a wide, open area with magnificent spring blooms.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Select a planting site in full sun, where it receives at least six hours of direct sunlight. It will tolerate light shade, but the flowering is best in full sun.

Well-drained soil is a must, too. If you see puddles long after a rainfall, simply elevate your plants in a mound of additional soil 18 inches high by three feet wide.

Give young plants a regular schedule of medium water. Once their roots are established in your soil, you can go longer between waterings.

Mulch helps your plants stay cool and moist. Apply to a depth of three inches, then pull it away six inches from the stems. Apply supplemental water during times of extended drought.

Right after the flowers are done, it's time to prune. Don't delay, as Lilacs will produce next year's flowers on the new growth from this year.

President Grevy can handle heavy pruning. Snip the past flowers, then remove inward-heading branches and the thickest stems out at ground level. The goal is to let the interior of the shrub have plenty of sunlight and air circulation.

If you live with deer in your area, apply repellent spray on planting day. Deer are hungry and curious, and you want to train them to leave your plants alone. Reapply according to the label.

With only limited care requirements, President Grevy Lilac gives you so much more in return. Use it to decorate your outdoor spaces. It will just get better and better year after year.
