Buds in early summer, 2-3 weeks after the common lilacs, the abundant blossoms are produced on new spring growth.Foliage is larger than other lilacs in this group. Upright rounded shrub. Excellent choice for attracting butterflies and humming birds to your landscape. Suitable as a backdrop for contrasting shrubs along foundation and border plantings. Works well for a fragrant accent and general gardening.
