Syringa vulgaris 'Monge'

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.

Dramatic reddish-purple flowers emerge from this sun-loving lilac.  Introduced in 1913, the Monge maintains its popularity,  producing single bloom panicles with an outstanding perfume, with its flowers often growing to 12 inches long.  It is valued for cut flowers and potpourri.  The Monge creates a showy hedge and this lilac boasts of beautiful heart-shaped leaves that adds interest to your yard.
