Common Lilac: Syringa vulgaris - 3GAL Pot 40CM Tall
A classic and fragrant lilac with large, lavender-purple flower clusters.
Caring for lilacs (Syringa) involves providing them with the right growing conditions and regular maintenance. Lilacs prefer full sun, so choose a location that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. They thrive in well-draining soil with a slightly alkaline to neutral pH. Water the plants deeply during dry periods, ensuring the soil remains evenly moist but not waterlogged. Apply a layer of mulch around the base of the plants to help retain moisture and suppress weeds. Prune lilacs immediately after flowering, removing spent blooms and shaping the shrub as desired. Avoid heavy pruning, as it can reduce flower production. Fertilize the plants in early spring with a slow-release, balanced fertilizer to promote healthy growth and vibrant blooms. Lilacs are generally low-maintenance and resistant to pests and diseases, but monitor for any signs of trouble. With proper care, your lilacs will reward you with their exquisite fragrance and beautiful clusters of flowers, adding charm and color to your garden or landscape.
