A favorite of northern gardeners, the Old-Fashioned Lilac is sure to delight your senses with its fragrance and lilac-purple flower panicles. Also called the common lilac, this flowering shrub grows 8-15 ft. tall with a 6-12 ft. spread. When it blooms in mid to late spring, its flower panicles perfume the air and attract butterflies and hummingbirds. You'll want to cut a few flower panicles and bring them indoors for fresh flower arrangements. While a beautiful specimen plant, the Old-Fashioned Jumbo Lilac also is impressive when planted in small groups, as a flowering hedge or privacy screen or in shrub borders. While low maintenance, it needs good air circulation and well-drained soil. Deer tend to pass it by. Grow in full sun to partial shade. Zones 3-7.
