Syringa Vulgaris Katherine Havemeyer Fragrant Flowering Lilac  Shrub 

Very Fragrant Flowering Lilac Shrub 60cm tall

One of the favourites, with large dense bunches of highly fragrant double purplelavender flowers in May, fading to pale lilac in mid summer.

Foliage: Dark-green in Spring; Dark-green in Summer

RHS AGM (Award of Garden Merit)

Plant in full sun in well drained moist alkaline or neutral soils.

Common lilac, which is rarely grown in its basic fragrant lilac-pink form, was introduced from the mountains of South-Eastern Europe in the 16th century, and has since produced numerous varieties, many of them similar to each other.

This old and still popular double purple red is one of the loveliest and most reliable.

It has good fragrance and flowers profusely, the neat compact heads of purple buds opening early in May to make a fine display of glistening white. Plants are usually grafted on S. vulgaris rootstocks.

To encourage big flowers and to keep the plant's size in check, prune out a third of the branches each year.

Ht 4 metres

Grown in a 7 litre pot.
