Our large Persian lilacs will immediately add a new attraction to your garden. In April/May this shrub blooms with a profusion of purple floral bouquets. Persian lilacs are smaller than common lilacs and generally achieve a maximum size of 8 feet tall and wide. The single flowers are pale in color and richly fragrant. The 3-inch-long flower clusters are smaller by about half compared to those of common lilacs. Persian lilacs sport dark green leaves for foliage interest throughout the growing season. The plants make attractive hedges, specimens or foundation plants, and the mid-season blooms attract bees, butterflies and nectar-seeking birds.

Love my Lilac

I planted it as soon as it arrived. I am so excited to have my own lilac in Georgia.

Lilac delivered 2 days before snow storm

The lowered temperature killed about 8" to 10" of the branches.
