Enjoy the sweet scent and unique form of these lovely shrubs.
The lilac shrub (Syringa vulgaris) is a member of the olive family, native to Greece. Brought to the Americas in the eighteenth century, there are now dozens of hardy and long-lived varieties available. Scent-sational lilac plants come in a wide range of colors and all of them have that prized legendary lilac fragrance. Check out the great selection of lilac plants for sale here at Michigan Bulb to find the perfect shade, size and shape for your landscape.
Lilacs are vigorous, hardy, low-maintenance and easy to grow. Lilac planting should optimally be done in the fall, although they can also be planted in the spring. They like a fertile, humus-enriched well-drained soil with a nuetral (7.0 pH) soil. Set the rootball in 2 - 3 inches deep into the soil and water it in. Some varieties begin flowering only after establishing themselves for a few season, but these rugged, fragrant shrubs will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.
