Syringa vulgaris President Lincoln

Syringa vulgaris President Lincoln

Considered the best blue Common Lilac, this classic favorite has orchid-colored buds that open to loose trusses of single, blue-lavender flowers carrying a heady, Lilac fragrance. 'President Lincoln' is a fast-growing variety with erect, open branches. A popular selection since its introduction in 1916.

Lilacs are essential spring-flowering shrubs. They offer dense heads of lavender-blue (better known as "lilac"), deep purple, white, or wine red flowers with a strong, sweet fragrance that is, for many of us, inextricably intertwined with memories of spring visits to Grandmother's house. Most Lilacs prefer full sun and neutral to slightly alkaline soil. For reliable bloom and sweet fragrance, generally around Memorial Day, these sturdy shrubs are in a class by themselves. (Please note: Lilacs will not endure desert heat.)
