Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Syringa vulgaris 'President Grevy'
Common Lilac, President Grevy Lilac
The fragrance of an old-fashioned lilac in bloom is aromatherapy at its finest. European in origin, these tall, open, deciduous shrubs don't look like much when they are not in bloom, but in late spring to early summer they become brag worthy. The cultivar 'President Grevy' bears highly fragrant panicles of large, double, pale lavender-blue flowers that appear along its branches. Next year's flower buds are set shortly after blooming, so all must be pruned directly after their yearly display. Lilac are easy to grow and do best in full sun and average well drained soil. They make fine feature plants and are especially sweet when planted in masses. Cut their fresh blossoms for fine, long-lasting flower arrangements.
