The Thumbelina® Lilac brings the wonderful brightness of pink to your spring blooms. This compact plant grows just 6 feet tall and wide, making it ideal for smaller spaces, where full-size lilacs won’t fit. In May it is smothered in bunches of blossoms, dark-pink in bud, opening to light pink, and gradually becoming almost white. The blooms have an exceptional fragrance, and nothing beats the smell of lilacs. Grow this plant around your home, beside a window or door, or in beds out in the garden. Make an informal hedge with it, or plant it for screening. After blooming its neat foliage always looks good.

  • Densely covered in trusses of pink blooms
  • Very highly fragrant, filling the air around it
  • Blooms all through the second half of May
  • Very winter-hardy, even in zone 3
  • Needs no trimming or dead-heading

The Thumbelina® Lilac is very cold-resistant, growing well in zone 3, and blooming profusely, as well as growing in all zones except for 8 and 9. It thrives in ordinary garden soils and conditions, and it should be planted in full sun for maximum blooming. No special care is needed, and dead-heading and pruning are unnecessary. If you do need to trim, do it only immediately after flowering has finished. Pests and diseases are usually no problem, and this plant is very easy to grow.
