How to Use Madame Lemoine Lilac in the Landscape

Plant one near your master bedroom window. You'll dream of paradise and Pegasus during spring bloom time with windows open wide.

Use several near the carport to hide the utilitarian aspects of your landscape. Turn eyesores into assets with these easy-care flowering shrubs.

Add a few in a loose triangle on top of a raised berm in your front yard. You'll block the foot traffic from looking in your picture window. At the same time, you'll have something pretty to look at from indoors.

Limit your palette to white-flowering plants for a fresh, crisp look. Plant Blanc Double de Coubert Hybrid Rugosa Roses nearby to continue the theme of fragrant white blooms through fall.

Go all out with a riotous mix of color. You'll be delighted how a backdrop of dark green Madame Lemoine Lilac foliage sets off those bold hues as a perfect backdrop for borders.

Line your pool deck or side yard with a hard-working hedge. Plant six feet apart on center, measuring from the center of one to the center of the next.

How lucky to have a Lilac hedge. You'll never, ever regret the choice of chic Madame Lemoine Lilac.

#ProPlantTips for Care

Lilacs are easily grown in average, medium moist, well-drained soil in full sun. Madame Lemoine Lilac tolerates light shade, but the best bloom is in full sun.

It prefers organically rich soils with good drainage. They won't tolerate "wet feet", so elevate the roots with a raised bed or planting mound, if you need to improve drainage.

Give young Lilacs a medium amount of water on a regular basis, especially during bloom time. Once it is established, apply supplemental water in an extended drought.

Prune the panicles as the flowers start to fade, and enjoy them in cut flower arrangements. Prune to shape immediately after the flowers are finished.

Open up the center of the shrub to air circulation and sunlight. Rejuvenate your shrub periodically by removing the thickest, oldest stems at ground level.

Deer tend to ignore Lilacs, but it's a best practice to use repellent spray on the day you plant. Reapply according to the directions.

Madame Lemoine Lilac is a bit like Audrey Hepburn. Classic, fresh and always stylish. Place your order for our high-end plant material today. Enjoy!
