Few things are more lovely than the fragrance of lilac in the spring. Planning on using this along a fence line for a little more privacy. Always nice to add in a treat for the pollinators too. Intrigued by the white blooms. I'm curious how much yellow comes across in the blooms. These look much more white than primrose lilacs I've seen on other sites.

We just lost a 10yr old Maltese who belonged to our daughter. She wanted to get something with white blooms to plant over his ashes to memorialize him, and what would be prettier than a white lilac? And, who can resist the smell? Looking forward to receiving this and hope we have good luck with it.

Can these lilacs be grown in containers?
Megan B on Jul 6, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. Lilacs typically won't bloom and grow poorly when their roots are restricted, so growing most varieties in a container is challenging. ... Smaller and dwarf varieties and those grown as trees can thrive in a pot, provided they receive the proper care and root pruning when they outgrow the container. This variety grows very large 15-20 feet.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
Can this variety be pruned to tree form or is it better to use as a bush?
Angie on Jul 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Any lilac can be pruned to a tree form; this variety is particular stunning as a tree.
