Tinkerbelle Lilac has an upright nature with a rounded habit that is perfect for a tree-form accent! Tinkerbelle is urban tolerant, disease-resistant that even deer tend to pass it by. It requires very little effort but provides an enormous return in the sumptuous beauty it will bring to your home!

#ProPlantTips for Care:

To keep Tinkerbelle at its happiest and healthiest, make sure to plant in full sun in some well-drained soil and a layer of mulch and you'll owner to the happiest Lilac on the block. If there is too much shade, your Lilac will limp along and produce leaves, but it will likely never produce blooms.

Air circulation is always a good idea for Lilacs. If you see long-lasting puddles in the area you want to plant, bring in additional native soil and create a mound 18 - 24 inches. Plant directly in that mound. This is especially true if you have clay soils. Lilacs do not tolerate standing water or wet feet but do appreciate their root system covered with 3-4 inches of Arborist bark chips.

Prune directly following the bloom to correct crossing branches or remove any broken limbs. Lilacs bloom on last year's wood. If you prune too early or too late, you'll lose the flowers for next spring. Prune it right after it finishes flowering ensuring you will enjoy an abundance of flowers the next year. Trim away suckers and branching from the trunk any time to keep the base of your Tree looking neat and tidy.

Tinkerbelle Lilac is deer-resistant but, if deer populations are high and the food is limited deer may sample any plant. If you live with deer in your area, apply repellent spray on planting day. Deer are hungry and curious, and you want to train them to leave your plants alone. Reapply according to the label.
