The fantastic scent and petite size of Little Lady™ Lilac (Syringa x 'Jeflady') is a beautiful, space-saver that fits perfectly among urban-sized lots and small courtyard gardens!

In spring, dark pink buds pop open into lilac-pink flowers that cluster in large panicles all over the shrub.

Lovely cut flowers and amazing at calling droves of pollinators, this pint-sized shrub has bright green foliage. The lush foliage looks amazing all growing season! Finishing the year with a red flush of fall color! Growing only 4-5 feet tall and wide, these delightful shrubs readily tuck into any sized garden!

This Little Lady™ has upright growth is rounded, tidy, and very easy-care! Incredibly cold-hardy, this flowering ornamental shrub survives winters down to USDA growing zone 2 through 7. Often passed by deer unless desperate, you'll have no shortage of pollinators, wildlife or hummingbirds once these lovely blossoms open!

Planting and Application:

Create fragrant drifts en masse of showy spring color, rows or informal hedges and barriers along your property edges for gorgeous privacy and definition that both you and your neighbors will love! Pollinators will be buzzing around these blooms and this strong fragrance is as welcome to the pollinator garden as it is in cutting gardens! Perennial beds are dressed up by the backdrop of beautiful green leaves, and cottage gardens benefit from this classic beauty.

Sized perfectly for foundation plantings, your view out of your windows will not be blocked, and these are wonderful in large planters around the patio! Add fragrance near seating and meditation gardens and sunny back decks. Add to protected planters around a terrace, lovely containers by your front door to welcome you home, or as tidy accents throughout any garden bed or border!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

Little Lady™ Lilac does need full sun for the most blooms and best growth. Plant in any kind of well-drained soil that is enriched with organic material. Tolerant of clay soil and acidic sites, Lilacs are garden standards that are highly adaptable! New shrubs need regular moisture but these are quite drought tolerant once established, and only require moderate moisture afterward. Add a three-inch layer of mulch over the root system, then, pull it away from the stems directly to provide proper air circulation. Use fertilizer for flowering shrubs according to the directions and avoid high nitrogen Lawn fertilizers which will reduce flowering./p>

Prune after the blooms are done, and don't wait too long. These bloom on old wood, so trim promptly to avoid removing next year's flowers. Give these superior shrubs a place of honor in your landscape. You'll love them for a very long time, with proper care.

  • Full Sun
  • Almost Any Well-Drained Soil Type
  • Moderate Moisture Needs
  • Prune Only Immediately After Flowering
  • Incredibly Cold Hardy & Drought Tolerant Once Established
