Lilac: (Syringa vulgaris). Ranging in size from 6 to 32 ft tall, with stems up to 12“ in diameter. 8 to 12 ft spread. Lilacs will grow in a wide variety of soil types and prefer neutral to slightly acidic soil. Lilacs need very little maintenance. They transplant very easily. They prefer full sun, but partial shade is fine as well. Aromatic purple flowers are produced in spring. Lilacs make an effective privacy screen and produce fragrant flowers in shades of lavender, deep purple and white that bloom primarily in May. Lilac bushes can live for hundreds of years. Spreading firewood ash around the drip line of the Lilac bush can help produce bigger and better blooms. Lilacs are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) species. They also provide quality cover for several birds and small mammals. Zones 3-7.
