The Edward J. Gardner Lilac is widely considered to be the best choice for lilac-pink blooms. With big, bold clusters of double flowers, this bush forms a cloud of delicate pink, and soft lilac tones, in your garden. A rich, delicious perfume spreads in all directions, and spring has come, with its beauty and warm days. Growing just 8 or 10 feet tall, this compact bush is ideal around your home or at the back of your beds, and it fills the corners of your yard perfectly. A great choice for colder zones, this shrub is easy to grow and it is very cold resistant.

  • Large bunches of lilac-pink double flowers
  • Wonderful perfume fills the garden
  • Easily grown medium-sized shrub
  • Grows well in cold regions
  • Excellent in foundation planting or along a boundary

Full sun will give the most blossoms on the Edward J. Gardner Lilac, but it will also grow well in a little partial shade. Most well-drained soils suit it perfectly, and some added compost or manure will really make it thrive. It is hardy all the way down to minus 40 degrees, so it is a great choice even in zone 3. Removing the flower heads as they fade, and pruning out the oldest branches, will keep it healthy and vigorous for many years of beautiful blossoms.
