All About The Purple Blooming Lilac

Why Old Fashioned Lilac?

Old Fashioned Lilac is a popular ornamental plant that is a perennial, deciduous Large Shrub and grows 12 to 15 feet tall. It is an old-fashioned and beloved Large Shrub because of its beautiful and fragrant flowers. It is one of the most effective flowering Large Shrubs and is common in northern and colder climates.

It is easy to establish and grows well in most soil types but prefers neutral to slightly acidic growing sites. They love the sun and must be positioned in a warm sunny area with well-drained soils.

Old Fashioned Lilac is a Large Shrub with multiple uses. Its bark and leaves are chewed for sore mouth treatment. In contrast, its twigs and flowers are used for obtaining green and yellow-orange dye. It is also famous for its fragrance and is used in perfumes.

Syringa vulgaris are also used as screen, hedges, and specimens. The smaller Large Shrubs can be potted in containers and used in small gardens for their enchanting beauty and alluring scent.

    The lilac bush arrived with leaves on it already. I planted it about 1 month ago, and it is thriving!

    I just received it, so this review is regarding packaging and condition of the plant. The packaging was excellent, and the roots were well hydrated with buds on the plant.

    Have had ups and downs trying to keep a few different varieties of lilac growing in Los Angeles. This one seems to be doing okay so far, hope to see some blooms soon!

    We have planted the 3 lilacs and the 2 roses that you sent us free. Thank you. All 5 seem to be doing great. We are excited to watch them grow.

    My bare root lilacs arrived with almost no roots so I was worried, but an overnight soak followed by immediate planting the following day resulted in growth showing already! I ordered 5, received 6 which is nice because one isl struggling. I can hardly wait for my driveway to be lined with blooming lilacs each spring.
