Lilacs are common and reliable shrubs of our climate. So it is clear that we will not offer you something that can be seen at every corner, but speciality plants that look a bit different and bring something extraordinary to your beautiful garden.

Hungarian lilac has its origin in Rumania and obviously Hungary. It prefers cooler climates to perform well. Its sweet scented flowers are formed in upright panicles that are not as clustered as on common lilac. Their colour is pink. The individual flowers are longer and tubular and look somewhat relaxed inside the panicle, not as crowded.

Lance-shaped leaves are 6-12 cm long, deciduous, deep green and glossy. This lilac grows about 3m tall and has arching branches so give it some space in your garden. Pruning is not recommended. If you need to trim or re-juvenate the plant do so immediately after flowering.

Lilacs can be grown in many soil types. For best result use reasonably fertile, moist but well-drained soil, preferably neutral or alkaline. Full sun for profuse flowering. Fully hardy to -29°C (USDA zone 5).
