Syringa vulgaris 'Adelaide Dunbar'

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.

The buds of this exceptional French hybrid lilac are an intense deep-purple hue, opening to lavender-pink double-flowers that are very fragrant and appear in large clusters in the spring. Butterflies, bees and florists will all love this 12' multi-trunked lilac. Very hardy, the Adelaide requires full sun and good drainage.
