Details

Planting & Growing

Scent And Sensibility™ Pink Lilac will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 5 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 30 years.

This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. 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.

Landscape Attributes

Scent And Sensibility™ Pink Lilac is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with a shapely oval form. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, 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.

Scent And Sensibility™ Pink Lilac is recommended for the following landscape applications:

Mass Planting, Hedges/Screening, General Garden Use

Ornamental Features

Scent And Sensibility™ Pink Lilac is blanketed in stunning panicles of fragrant pink flowers at the ends of the branches from early spring to mid fall that fade to creamy white over time, which emerge from distinctive rose flower buds. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has dark green foliage throughout the season. The small pointy leaves do not develop any appreciable fall color. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.
