The best fragrance yet!  

Scentara Double Blue Lilac is going to change the way you look at lilacs…or at least change the way you smell them!

This is the most fragrant of all of the Proven Winners lilac introductions over the last several years. The scent is intoxicating and will easily perfume your garden. Not just your garden, but when cut and brought inside, it will perfume your whole house!

Who needs a big flower show when the scent is so good? But thankfully we have a spectacular flower show as well! Double Lilac Blue covers itself in big classic lilac panicles in shades of lavender blue. It definitely has that true lilac look that you want in your spring garden – it form, in flower and in scent.

This is the new go-to lilac for fragrance and form. It is a big plant growing up to 8’ tall and 10’ wide. It also easily handles temps down to -50 degrees, so it is great in cold-winter zones.

Plant this deer resistant beauty somewhere where it has room to spread. It is a great specimen plant when highlighted on its own merits, but is fits into the shrub border well, too, where it plays nice with others. It is also a great plant for the cutting garden.

You will want to add this lovely lilac to your collection this spring, so order yours now and enjoy the fragrance later!

* Lavender blue flowers
* Full sun
* Amazing fragrance
* Easy care
* Cutting garden
