The purple lilac will not only provide your landscape with beautiful, large, purple clustered flowers but also a fragrance that is the very essence of spring. These flowers will attract butterflies and hummingbirds to your home all spring and into the summer. This stunning shrub can be made to fit your needs as an individual specimen, informal hedge, shrub border, a windbreak or screen. Once established it is a low maintenance plant, but pruning will help you maintain the desired shape and abundant blooms. Often described as "hardy" the lilac bush is adaptable to different soil conditions and can withstand severe winter conditions.
General care for any tree or shrub is easy, but like any living thing will require your attention. Please educate yourself and follow these simple rules.
