This Manchurian lilac cultivar is a compact, upright, deciduous shrub which grows 4-7′ tall with a similar spread. Lavender to ice blue, sweetly fragrant, single flowers are arranged in dense, terminal clusters (panicles to 3″ long) which cover this shrub in May (St. Louis). Elliptic to ovate, dark green leaves (to 5″ long) turn burgundy (often attractive) in autumn. A good selection for southern climates. Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in full sun. Tolerates light shade, but best bloom is in full sun. Prefers rich, moist, somewhat neutral soils. Needs good air circulation. Prompt removal of faded flower panicles before seed set will increase bloom in the following year. Prune immediately after flowering. This compact cultivar has good mildew-resistant foliage and is a good selection for smaller areas. May be massed, grouped or planted as a small specimen. Good for shrub borders, foundation plantings, peripheries of borders or rock gardens.
