Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: First, choose a location with moist but well-drained soil. This lilac does not like acidic soil. Also, be sure the site you choose has good air circulation and full sun for best flowering. Dig a hole approximately 6 inches wider and the same depth as the roots. Place the plant in the hole so that the crown is just above the ground level and gently spread the roots. Fill the hole with soil and water thoroughly. Keep the soil moist around the roots. Water more frequently in extreme heat. Prune after flowering.

Pests or Diseases: The plant grows in shade but flowering is poor and powdery mildew is likely.
