LoreLilac has always been renowned for the fragrance of its flowers, yet it has long been considered bad luck to bring cut lilac blooms indoors. Some attribute this to the old time practice of using lilac flowers to mask the odor of death during funerals with viewing of the body done in the home parlor.
Average Size at MaturityQuickly reaches 10 ft. tall, 6 ft. wide.
Bloom TimeSpring
Design IdeasLilacs are among the most beautiful of all deciduous flowering shrubs. Use as a single specimen early season focal point at some far point of the garden. Closer in plant where the heady fragrance is best enjoyed. In side yards and as hedges dividing houses the windows can be open for the floral scent to waft indoors. Plant next to outdoor living spaces, preferably upwind to keep you perpetually perfumed. Large plants make excellent background for perennial borders. Use to mark a gateway or entry where you pass by the blooms going in and out. A stellar foundation plant for front yard highlights.
