Product Details

Supplies as small 1-1.5m tall

Lilacs grow anonymously throughout the year but they are well and truly noticed in May and June when their fragrant floral display is in full throw. That’s not to say they are a boring plant when not in flower as their rich green foliage and bushy form make them an ideal choice of small tree for a garden where you are struggling to get height but don’t want too much height!.

This old variety is one of many on the market and has been around since the 1880s, bred by the then well known Spath nursery in Berlin, Germany. Its fantastic sweetly scented blue / purple flowers stand out in any late spring / early summer garden. Syringa vulgaris Ludwig Spath is easily maintained and can be ruthlessly pruned in the winter if necessary. Thriving on most free draining soils Its oval leaves turn yellow in the autumn.

Mature height: 3-5m
