Syringa vulgaris 'Charles Joly'

Lilacs are popular spring ornamentals.  They are upright shrubs with purple, fragrant pyramidal blooms. They make a beautiful addition to borders, hedges and container gardens.  They naturally attract bees, butterflies and birds to your garden and work well for borders,  hedges and container gardens. Naturally deer resistant, they grow best with full sun and partial shade and well-drained soil and grow between 5-12 feet tall. Lilacs are great for fresh flower arrangements.

This award winning French lilac was introduced in 1896. It is a proven favorite featuring deep purple buds that burst into beautiful fuchsia clusters with heart-shaped blue/green leaves. It makes a great boarder but can stand alone as a specimen plant in your garden, it’s blooms lasting 3-4 weeks. The fragrant  blossoms make a stunning bouquet, or indoor arrangement.
