Common Purple Lilac
| ||Zone 3 - 7|
Well-known and loved by gardeners all over the world for its beauty and fragrance; one of the most powerful fragrances emitted by a plant.

Lilacs can withstand severely cold winters (even -35 degrees C) and in fact the species does not grow well in areas without significant frost in wintertime. (2' - 3' tall)
This hardy vigorous shrub is the white version of the old-fashioned favorite. It has attractive foliage, single white fragrant flowers that makes a great informal hedge or screen. Rarely to never fed on by Japanese beetles. Full sun.
