Common Purple Lilac


Common Purple Lilac

Syringa vulgaris 12-15' x same.

A mass of medium-light purple blooms every year. A magnificent New England sight for nearly 400 years.

When a nursery friend looked out John Bunker’s living room window and thought he had some fancy new cultivar, he chuckled, “Nope, just the good old common purple.” Never disappoints.

Suckers freely, the best lilac for a spreading hedge. Z3. (1-3' bare-root plants)
