Compact Dwarf Lilac with Unique Flower Color

Wonderblue Lilac, Syringa vulgaris 'Wonderblue', is a variety of lilac that is a slower grower and the branching is compact. It produces single, sky-blue flowers of good fragrance that are excellent for cutting. The small mounded shape lends itself to use in limited spaces of the landscape.

This semi-dwarf, upright, oval shaped cultivar is expected to grow into a suckering shrub that reaches 4-5 feet tall and 5-6 feet in width. This plant is attractive to bees, butterflies and/or birds and requires average water needs; water regularly; do not overwater.

Wonderblue prefers full sun, good drainage and air circulation. It tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun.

It can be used in many situations, including shrub borders, informal hedges and perennial borders. Being very showy and fragrant, it makes a wonderful screen or border specimen!
