The Charles Joly Lilac is an upright deciduous shrub growing up to 12 feet tall and 10 feet wide, if not kept smaller by pruning. It has attractive heart-shaped leaves and blooms in May, between the bulbs and the summer shrubs. The trusses of blooms are 8 inches long, packed with many double flowers that are brilliant royal purple, and they release the classic lilac perfume that is so widely loved. Blooms last a month, and this plant is ideal for the back of shrub beds, beside windows and doors, in corners of your yard or as a screen. Enjoy the true pleasure of a classic heirloom French lilac.

  • Huge upright clusters of double blooms in rich purple tones
  • Richly fragrant, filling your garden with delicious scent
  • A true heirloom variety created in France over 100 years ago
  • Ideal for very cold areas, even zone 2
  • Grows well in alkaline soils

The Charles Joly Lilac should be planted in full sun to produce the most blooms, and it grows in any well-drained soil, even in urban gardens and drier soils. If pruned every year it is generally free of serious pests. Prune after flowering, removing spent flowers, trimming back long branches and taking out some of the oldest stems.
