Syringa vulgaris 'Charles Joly'

'Charles Joly' Lilac

Price: €18.95

An old-fashioned garden favourite - a deliciously fragrant lilac with particularaly dark pink flowers. Few plants capture the essence of summer as unmistakably as lilac. It has sprays of lilac, dark pink-red flowers in early summer on a vigorous, deciduous shrub up to 6m in height. Easily grown and robust, it likes a sunny or lightly shaded spot in most soils, and is particularly tolerant of limey soils. After two or three years, cut one third of shoots to ground level to encourage new growth. Works well in a loosely planted mixed hedge. 60cm tall plants in a 5-7.5L container. Please note, items displayed on this website may not be available in each of our shops.  (A)
