Add it to your collection and enjoy more of that amazing fragrance longer! Royalty Lilac is robust and extremely hardy, including resistance to disease and deer.

How to Use Royalty Lilac in the Landscape
Royalty Lilac is a late blooming variety of the popular ornamental shrub. One would be terrific near a patio or deck where you can easily enjoy its exceptional beauty and fragrance.
Use Royalty as a freeform, informal flowering hedge for a really pretty sense of privacy in the warm months. Even though it's a deciduous shrub, the dense branch structure provides screening year round.
Try it near the patio, or along the length of the pool deck. You'll have very little maintenance and enjoy the masses of fragrant flowers at the start of the summer.
Use a single plant as a specimen in the lawn, or to easily soften a corner of your house. The upright branching structure is energizing, and the relaxing foliage is a steady and sure green presence.
Lilacs are incredibly popular, and there's no wonder why. They've been immortalized in poetry, literature and song for generations, and will certainly continue to be one of the most sought after plantings. This is a great choice.
Developed in Ottawa, Canada, by Isabella Preston in the 1920's; Royalty Lilac is a particularly interesting variety as it has all of the outstanding features of Lilac shrubs, but with some added advantages.
These butterfly magnets live for a very long time. Start a collection with Common Lilacs or stick with Royalty. There is no way to go wrong with these magnificent landscape shrubs!
#ProPlantTips for Care
Give Royalty Lilac a moderate amount of regular water. It performs best in full sun where it will receive at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.
It requires a planting site with good soil drainage. If you see puddles that remain long after a rainfall, mound up when planting. Bring additional soil in and heap it up 18 - 24 high. You'll plant directly in that mound.
Air circulation is important for Lilacs, so find a breezy place for them to perform at their best. It's best to avoid low spots or heavily enclosed locations that trap airflow. You'll love the airborne scent traveling throughout your yard, too.
Fertilize in early spring and again in mid-summer with Dr. Earth Organic and All Purpose Fertilizer, following directions on the package.
Give your plants an annual layer of mulch, completely covering the root system to a depth of 3 inches. Spread it out to 3 to 4 feet from the center of the plant. As a final step, be sure to pull the mulch away from the main stems by at least 2 inches to give it air circulation.
Royalty Lilac blooms on old wood, so prune just as soon as the flowers fade. Don't wait much longer than that, or you'll risk missing out on next year's blooms.
To rejuvenate older plants, you can take out several of the oldest, thickest stems by cutting them off at ground level. This will promote new growth from the base of the plant, which will flower beautifully for you.
