    Description:

    When in bloom this new lilac commands attention, with its lavender-pink flowers produced on both the ends and along the branches; the result appears to be massive panicles of flowers that literally weigh the branches down and cause them to arch

    Ornamental Features

    Lilac Sunday Lilac is smothered in stunning panicles of fragrant lavender flowers at the ends of the branches in mid spring. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The pointy leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

    Landscape Attributes

    Lilac Sunday Lilac is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a shapely form and gracefully arching branches. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

    This is a high maintenance shrub that will require regular care and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting butterflies to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.

    Lilac Sunday Lilac is recommended for the following landscape applications;

    • Accent
    • Mass Planting
    • Hedges/Screening
    • General Garden Use

    Planting & Growing

    Lilac Sunday Lilac will grow to be about 10 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 12 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front, and is suitable for planting under power lines. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for 40 years or more.

    This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It is very adaptable to both dry and moist locations, and should do just fine under average home landscape conditions. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.
