Fragrant blooms cover 4-6 ft shrubs. Exceptionally hardy.
Densely flowering 4-6 ft. shrubs produce an explosion of fragrant deep lavender-purple flowers in spring, and a steady show of blooms right up till frost. Exceptionally hardy reblooming lilac, arrayed with large, rounded, rich-purple inflorescences, makes the perfect landscape plant, attracting frequent butterfly visitors. Deer-resistant, easily managed shrubs prefer sunny locations with moist, well-drained soil.

A little plant with a lot of heart.I bought this lilac last year and it has really struggled. I was surprised to see that it survived our very mild winter because it was having such a hard time. It did get a few tiny blossoms this spring but very little growth. It is still less than a foot tall and fragile. It didn't seem to like being situated in a sunny location on the east facing side of my house (morning and afternoon sun only) so I moved it to a shadier spot and it is beginning to do better. It is still tiny but I'm beginning to have some optimism for it.

Patiently waitingReceived and planted at the very end of May last year and I'm patiently waiting to see what happens. It survived the winter and has lots of little green bits coming out. I'm a beginner and we seem to have a lot of squirrels, chipmunks and bunnies that seem to eat everything that is small and trying to grow but they didn't go after this lilac!
